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.

Known for his reluctant superstardom, an exclusive, rarely seen 18 minute interview with Kitaro is also a featured on the DVD as a tribute to -- and special treat for – his loyal fans.

The Essential Kitaro

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.
