About the Album

"Prickly Pear Cactus" is the title track from Satoko Fujii and Ikue Mori’s album recorded in quarantine over the internet. Working half a world apart from their respective homes in New York and Kobe, composer-instrumentalists Ikue Mori on laptop, Satoko Fujii on piano – with trumpeter Natsuki Tamura joining on several tracks – swapped sound files over the internet to build a remarkably intimate and powerful album. Together they created a triumph of friendship and creativity over the isolation and devastation of the global coronavirus pandemic.
