Luna’s Interview on Live Relentless

Live Relentless just posted Gayageum artist Luna‘s interview on their website.

0622luna_liverelentless

HOW DID YOU GET INTO MUSIC?

I started with learning the piano when I was young and my parents saw how much I enjoyed it, and then they decided to help me out to be a musician. I think they wanted me to play something special, and at that time Gayageum was a pretty rare instrument to play in Korea. I think that was a brilliant idea from them.

WHAT ALL IS INVOLVED IN PRODUCING YOUR MUSIC ASIDE FROM PLAYING THE GAYAGEUM INSTRUMENT?

In the case of the footage uploaded on my YouTube channel, I work on making the backing-tracks and do a simple mixing and mastering, which is a reason for it to take a bit of time to upload the videos. I believe this effort other than playing the Gayageum, obviously is a big help to satisfy my fans too.

[LIMITED ITEM] KITARO Ku-Kai Deluxe Box Set Now On Sale!

kukaibox

This Ku-Kai box set includes Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai Vol.1 to Vol.4 in a special deluxe edition box. All four CDs have Kitaro autographs.
ONLY 10 SETS AVAILABLE.

[Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai Vol.1 - Vol.4]

Kitaro’s Sacred Journey of Ku-kai Series is a foray into a unique perspective of an issue that is on everyone’s mind this day. Inspired by the events of September 11, the music is intended to address a holistic solution to personal and global concerns juxtaposed against forward-thinking views of our own spiritual development.

In 2012, Kitaro has begun a traditional Japanese spiritual pilgrimage to a number of temples in Japan. Known as the Shikoku Henro Pilgrimage, this journey will take him on a circular path to all 88 temples on the island of Shikoku (Japan). On Kitaro’s journey, he has sampled bell sounds from each temple as a basis for the compositions. It is Kitaro’s intention that his message of peace will help people appreciate the nature of our individual experiences and that they can only unify us all in global and spiritual co-existence.

Each album in the series has been nominated for a GRAMMY Award in the Best New Age Album category.
