More on Kitaro

Back in Japan Kitaro started his solo career in 1977. The first two albums Ten Kai and From the Full Moon Story became cult favorites of fans of the nascent New Age movement. He performed his first symphonic concert at the ‘Small Hall’ of the Kosei Nenkin Kaikan in Shinjuku, Tokyo. During this concert Kitaro used a synthesizer to recreate the sounds of 40 different instruments, a world’s first. But it was his famous soundtrack for the NHK series “Silk Road” which brought him the international attention.

He struck a worldwide distribution arrangement with Geffen Records in 1986; in 1987 he collaborated with different musicians, e.g. with Micky Hart (Grateful Dead) and Jon Anderson (Yes). In 1988 his record sales soared to 10 million worldwide. He was nominated twice for a Grammy award and his soundtrack for the movie “Heaven & Earth” won the award for best original score. He won another grammy award for his album Thinking of You in 2001.

    Not bad. Some trickery with the key assignments as it’s in E-minor and the keys he played didn’t correspond with the correct pitch, but fair enough for small hands. I wonder what Kitaro was playing 50 years ago when he was 5.
