JoJo Zawawi has been playing piano since she was 18 months old, when she was found by her mother playing a Bach prelude by ear. Her mom, also a pianist, gave free reign to JoJo in her musical pursuits, and JoJo would spend hours in the sunroom with her beloved old Chickering upright, improvising and creating all sorts of music.

JoJo’s performance career started in the early 1970’s, and she has been performing both solo and as part of various musical groups in the USA, Europe and the Caribbean. However, her main thing has always been composing. She’s got boxes of fantastic material waiting to be digitized and published, but she’s always busy writing new stuff! One of these days... :) She pretty much writes anything she wants to write, and so creates music in a wide variety of genres—Classical, Jazz, Cinematic, Chill-Out/Ambient, Flamenco, Salsa, Chinese, Arabic, East Indian, Tango, Gospel, and her own particular style which could only be called “JoJo Music”. Her music lends itself very well to cinematic use—and yes, she is available for film scoring (projects of any size), and yes, her music is available for licensing! This is pretty much her favorite activity. Bring it on!

Called a “genius composer” by Grammy-winning jazz pianist Chick Corea, her music continues to attract raves from listeners around the world. Here are a few:

“Very very very very well done!!!! I enjoyed it very much. I recognized your playing right away—‘JoJo Music’. Keep on creating!” —Chick Corea (world-renowned 20-time Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist & composer)
