It was during this time of disbelief and uncertainty that Kitaro envisioned the Ku-Kai series as a means of uniting the world through music embracing his frequently referenced universal message of peace.

The Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai series is an earthly voyage that transports the listener to the eighty-eight sacred temples located on Shikoku Island in Japan, ancestral home of the beloved Buddhist holy man Ku-kai. The music is serene paying homage to the true to life excursion made over 1100 years ago on Shikoku Island endures to this day. Each track on the album revolves around the unique bell sound from the individual temples, using actual sampling and Kitaro’s inspired musical interpretations and distillations of their essences.

The Ku-Kai series is comprised of “Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai Vol. 1” in 2003, “Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai Vol. 2” in 2005, “Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai Vol. 3” in 2007, and “Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai Vol. 4” in 2010.

The global admiration for Kitaro and his music that unites the world is, of all things, real and constant.

Luna Featured on Great Big Story

Screen Shot 2017-02-22 at 5.06.04 PM

Rock the Gayageum:

Covering Classics with an Ancient Instrument

In Seoul, South Korea, a young musician is mixing a centuries-old Korean instrument with the music of rock legends. Luna Lee plays the gayageum, a box-like string instrument that dates back to 400 B.C. However, Lee thought it was wasteful to only play the traditional music associated with the instrument, so her repertoire features covers from Jimi Hendrix, Queen, Nirvana, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and other rock luminaries. With millions of views on YouTube, Lee is bringing Korean traditions of the past and popular culture of the present to a whole new audience.

This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.
