He’s universally acknowledged as the founding architect of new age music. Kitaro’s various sound collaborations and resonant, multi-textured compositions truly defy the constraints of any genre.
The Grammy and Golden-Globe winning Kitaro has garnered global acclaim over a more than three decade career with a signature sound and a pioneering fusion of cultures, techniques and spheres of consciousness that are truly his own.
His latest project, the third in a series of a collection of works and peace-themed albums (Volume 1 released in 2003; Volume 2 in 2005) is inspired by the classic Buddhist pilgrimage to the 88 sacred temples on Japan’s remote Shikoku Island. A journey taken by the beloved Buddhist monk Ku-Kai over a millennium ago, through the music contained in Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai Volume 3, Kitaro continues to explore uncharted waters with his magnificently expansive vision and ever-questing spirit.
