Re-release of the landmark album by new age pioneer and Grammy Award nominee
Kitaro, on 180g vinyl for the first time.
Universally acknowledged as the founding architect of new age music, Kitaro's
various sound collaborations and resonant, multi-textured compositions truly
defy the constraints of any genre.
Kojiki is an inspired musical journey based on the ancient chronicle that
recounts the birth of Japan and its people. Featuring the string section from
the Skywalker Symphony, along with Kitaro's signature keyboard and flute sounds,
the score to this passionate thematic backdrop is masterfully conceived,
arranged, and performed.
"Kitaro's style is the epitome of the contemplative, highly melodic
synthesizer music often associated with the new-age movement." - VH-1
"This new album is classic Kitaro, with many layers of synthesizer and
orchestral textures stating the themes." - All Music Guide
"In the 1970s, Kitaro brought melody to space music and carried that through
to ambitious works of orchestral world music on albums like 1990's Kojiki. Fans
of the synthesist should find a lot of familiar territory here." - John
