Kitaro

Masanori Takahashi better known as Kitarō, (February 4, 1953) is a Grammy award-winning Japanese musician, composer and multi-instrumentalist. In the early 1970s, he changed completely to keyboards. He joined the band "Far East Family Band" and toured with them around the world. In Europe, he met the German synthesizer musician and former Tangerine Dream member Klaus Schulze. Schulze produced two albums for the band and gave Kitaro some tips for the use of synthesizers. In 1976 he left the band and travelled through Asia. 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.

Kitaro - Tenku

Artist: Kitaro
P: 1986 / 2005
The title, which means ‘heavenly sky’, reflects the open air environment of Kitaro’s home studio. On the opening track, a child’s laughter is heard. The album’s theme concerns images and impressions of childhood.

"I send a message of sound toward the sky, engulfing empty space, soaring far beyond grasp, high above the mountain tops, beyond ocean waves, stretching to reach the Andes and lightly touching Nepal . . . now catch the sound and feel the light by feeling things which are with life . . . this is a beginning – connecting the dream to the color of your breathless heart – peace and tranquility, you need only to sing . . . it is for you" --Kitaro

Kitaro - Tunhuang (Silk Road III)

Artist: Kitaro
P: 1981
The instrumentation on this album is heavy on the analog synths and the dreamy, soft soundscapes that would not be out of place on a Tangerine Dream or (especially) Vangelis album from 1977 - 1979 are everywhere on Tun Huang (aka Silk Road 3). I would also throw 1975 Pink Floyd in there too, but that might be stretching it a bit...but not much I might add. The analog synthesizers used by Kitaro include instruments by Roland, Prophet (Prophet V), and Moog (mostly mini-moog), along with the mellotron - everything sounds incredibly warm and organic. Kitaro is also quite the multi-instrumentalist and plays a full drum kit and percussion on a few tracks, along with the sitar (on Lord of the Sand only), tabra, acoustic guitar, chanting bell, and wind chime. Joining Kitaro on this album is violinist Yasuo Kojima - he contributes some excellent playing.
