KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 30 – Japanese supreme instrumentalist KITARO, who is famous for his brand of contemplative, highly melodic synthesizer music, is set to perform on Christmas Eve, 24th December, at 10p.m. at the Arena of Stars, Resorts World Genting.
It has been more than 6 years since he last performed in Malaysia, and his upcoming new tour “KOJIKI & the Universe” will promise audience with a unique and visually-inspiring concert experience, merging the artist’s Grammy nominated music “KOJIKI” album with dynamic space-age photographic scenes of the Universe.
The live concert will feature time-lapse images, expertly intertwined with the real-time films provided by and in cooperation with NASA and Kyoto University. Meanwhile, KITARO’s “KOJIKI & the Universe” Live Tour was first performed on 20th April in California.
The tour reached major cities in Europe, including London and Istanbul, impressing audience with his fascinating music arrangement, where they are calling it an “out of this world” performance. The tour will continue in November with several stops at Romania, Ukraine and Bulgaria before coming to Malaysia.
KITARO whose real name is Masanori Takahashi, is a popular composer and multi-instrumentalist from Japan. Inspired by American R&B, his unique fusion of electronic artistry, traditional Japanese forms, and pop-inflected Western idioms created a rich, harmonic, and poetic sound that won the legendary artist a huge international following.
