The Kitaro Quintessential
For over 40 years and throughout his musical career, Kitaro has been a true groundbreaking artist with amazing live performances and music that blurs the lines between many musical genres including jazz, rock, new age and world music.
His tireless dedication to his craft and ability to repeatedly produce an astronomical body of work in terms of numbers of releases and quality of work makes The Kitaro Quintessential a “must have” addition to any collector of fine works’ musical library and places Kitaro in the dialogue and conversation as one of the most prolific artists of his generation.
This authorized two-disc set includes a dynamic CD that has taken Kitaro to the four corners of the globe and back again, spiritually, physically and musically. Musical masterworks from the Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai series, Kojiki, Dream, An Ancient Journey, Ancient, Gaia Onbashira, Impressions Of The West Lake and Kitaro’s Grammy Award-winning disc, Thinking Of You are the chosen tracks featured on this release.
The DVD contains 123 minutes of breath taking live performance footage of his most popular and elaborate productions that have been edited and now appear as technical achievements in concert videos. Images on the DVD include live performances from An Enchanted Evening, Kojiki: A Story In Concert, Tamayura as well as The Light Of The Spirit, on which Kitaro's music is blended to spectacular nature videos.

As a homage to Kitaro's lifetime reverence for Nature, Final Call is a voyage of introspection specifically concerned about how we treat our planet. It’s Kitaro’s assertion that the planet itself is crying out and warning us about potential serious consequences if we don’t address these global issues in a timely fashion.
In his own words, Kitaro describes his new musical work, "I have always felt we all must respect the providence of the Universe. Unfortunately, through the course of time and the growth of civilization, many living creatures that we now know will become extinct. If we don't alter how we treat each other and our planet Earth, many habitats and portions of this earth may become devastated and eventually disappear. This album is the story of an epic voyage... A voyage of hope that all living creatures can someday live happily in harmony with each other. The story begins from where we board for departure."
Tamayura CD & DVD
As one of the founding fathers of the new age and world music genres known to his legions of fans by a single word, Kitaro, has consistently been at the forefront of the international music scene. Perhaps best known for his cutting-edge studio technique and flawless, sold-out live performances, Kitaro continues his tradition of carving his own musical and visual, artistic path on Tamayura. This special one night musical performance was choreographed by Koichi Tamano with The Harupin-Ha Butoh Dance Theater who bring the characters of the story to life.
On Tamayura, Kitaro takes his audience into life in a microscopic world and gives fans an artful look at what the lives of these characters are like. In this “micro” world, very unusual circumstances and situations occur. But, it’s a beautiful world, where children in bubbles play and interact with the Fairy Of The Waterlily.
Through his look into this previously unseen world, Kitaro demonstrates the differences between our lives and the lives of those who exist in a microscopic place. As Kitaro notes, “Through my work on Tamayura, I hope that we all awaken in a manner which will help us to realize something individually personal. I'd like everyone who enjoys Tamayura to take from this event something that makes us all feel different.”
Accompanying the Compact Disc is a DVD that features wildly colorful scenes and surreal, magical dance routines.
