Domo Records to release Music For Sleep on February 8th featuring music by Kitaro, Dave Eggar, Hiroki Okano, Dino Malito and Fumio Miyashita

LOS ANGELES, CA (January 30, 2019) – To relax.  To disconnect from the tentacles of 24/7 technology.  To truly unplug.  It’s become more than a goal.  It’s become a necessity.  And, it’s become more difficult than ever to do, especially when we sleep.  Essential to one’s complete physical, emotion and mental health, the deeper and more tranquil sleep, the better.  The answer to those better nights lies with music.

Think of the baby and the lullaby; how the gentle sounds, almost instinctively, hypnotically induce a calming, soothing state ideal for sleeping.  Slower rhythms with soft sonic edges, played at a consistent volume, encourage deep relaxation, blocking out distractions, and helping the body to quickly find and maintain its natural sleep rhythm.  Music is the medicine.

Chronic sleep problems can be physically draining, and turn what should be hours of blissful escape into anxiety-ridden nightly recurrences.  Set aside the daily grind and unwind with music designed specifically to promote soothing dream states, and provide more rejuvenation in the morning.  Not to mention the proven benefits of lower heart rate and lower blood pressure, reduced insomnia, and increased energy the next day.

It’s time to fall asleep faster, wake-up less, and feel more rested in the morning.  It’s time for Music For Sleep.

NEW RELEASE – Kotahi Te Wairua

These entities from Maori mythology, the Sky-father and Earth-mother, existed locked in a loving embrace.  Their progeny, the young Gods, grew tall and strong and in their desperate struggle for space forcibly separated the parents.  In their struggle for identity and independence the young Gods created the natural world, as we know it, leaving Rangi and Pāpā in aching separation forever.

Dino Malito Puts a New Acoustic Twist on Five Iconic Kitaro Compositions in an EP To Be Released By Domo Music Group on May 4th, 2018

Los Angeles, CA (March 2018) – With an eye toward exploration and re-imagination of some of its core catalog, Domo Music Group will release a five song EP by recording artist Dino Malito. The tracks are acoustic versions of early, iconic compositions by New Age Grammy and Golden-Globe award winner, Kitaro.
Rather than utilizing an array of synthesizers, as is Kitaro’s trademark style, this EP takes the original music masters on a transformational journey through the use of acoustic guitars, ukulele, mandolin, dulcimer and shamisen textured with David Gilmour-esque guitar leads. Kitaro fans will be comforted to hear some of their most cherished melodies and themes while allowing Malito to bring them on a unique and tasteful voyage that breathes new life into these beloved classics.

All songs arranged, performed and produced by Dino Malito.

Recorded by Dino Malito at Orlando II, Los Angeles, CA 
Mixed and Mastered by Tim Gennert

Dino Malito : Electric + Acoustic Guitars, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, Mandolin, Dulcimer, Shamisen

Executive Producer : Eiichi Naito

Kitaro Nominated For the 60th Grammy Awards!

Kitaro Captures His 17th Grammy Award Nomination in the Best New Age Album Category for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards Ceremony January 28, 2018 in New York City


Los Angeles, CA (November 28, 2017) – For the 17th time, Golden Globe and Grammy-Award winning composer, musician and recording artist Kitaro has captured a Grammy Award Nomination for this year’s 60th anniversary of the Grammy Awards. Kitaro’s Best New Age Album Grammy nomination is for his full-length album release Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai, Volume 5. Commenting on his Grammy nomination, Kitaro said, “I want to thank the Grammy and NARAS and Recording Academy members and voters, as well as all of the Domo Records team for making this nomination a reality. I am extremely proud of this project and am pleased to have it received in such a positive manner.”
Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai Volume 5 follows the highly acclaimed Volumes 1 through 4 of the series, all of which have earned Grammy nominations. The Ku-Kai series concept arose after the global events on the fateful day of September 11, 2001. Kitaro was traveling on a jet from Japan to Los Angeles when the transcontinental flight was diverted to Hawaii for five days due to the tragedy. 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 Volume 5 release is an earthly voyage that transports the listener to Shikoku, Japan. It pays homage to the beloved Buddhist holy man Ku-Kai who traveled the 750-mile long pilgrimage to the eight-eight sacred temples on the island over 1100 years ago. Each track on the album revolves around an audio sample of the bell sound from each temple. With these bell sounds; Kitaro distills their essences with inspired musical interpretations.
The Recording Academy will present the Grammy Awards on Sunday January 28th live from Madison Square Garden in New York. The festivities will be broadcast on the CBS Television Network from 7:30-11:00 pm Eastern Time and 4:30-8:00 pm Pacific Time.
Kitaro on Tour: Kitaro’s international “Kojiki & The Universe” Tour played to capacity audiences this year in exotic locations including London, Istanbul and Romania. The Grammy and Golden Globe Winning artist returned to the West Coast for the LIVE in CONCERT production of “Kojiki And The Universe” that merged Kitaro’s Grammy nominated music from the album “Kojiki” with space-age photographic scenes of the Universe. “Kojiki and The Universe LIVE” featured time-lapse images, expertly intertwined with real-time films provided by and in cooperation with Kyoto University’s Astronomy Professor Kazunari Shibata, NASA, and The Hubble Space Telescope. Taiko drumming and Butoh dancing enriched the program.
