The Essential Kitaro by Kitaro

$8.99 $16.98

Released: November 7, 2006
Format: CD+DVD set / Digital Download

CD+DVD Double Disc Set. The sheer breadth of Kitaro's eclecticism is on full display here, with selections from his essential soundtrack work collected on The Best of Silk Road (which accompanied the acclaimed Japanese documentary series) and 2002's The Soong Sisters, to his Broadway score for Cirque Ingenieux, as well as more personal creations such as the two-volume Sacred Journey of Kukai, a surprising melting pot of prog-rock guitar, haunting woodwinds, snippets of nature sounds and even Buddhist monk chanting. Though his studio output is indispensable, it's the live realm where Kitaro really shines. Thus, the DVD that complements this CD collection contains stunning footage of two very different but equally epic performances: a 1999 concert in Spain and a 2004 show in China, both demonstrating that Kitaro's music truly crosses borders to deliver a universal message.
