Megumi Saruhashi is a violinist and composer, who grew up around rice paddy fields in seaport city, Funabashi in Chiba Prefecture, Japan. Having performed around the globe from Carnegie Hall to refugee camps in the Middle East, Megumi knows no boundary when it comes to performing music. Megumi has embraced her credo “The earth is my home, the sky is my blanket. Wherever I go, I am home”, with three bases she calls home, namely, Japan, New York and Egypt. Megumi has also been active as a soloist with ensembles and orchestras in Cairo, especially with El Manara ensemble. She has frequently appeared at the Cairo Opera House as a guest soloist.
