Kitaro is recording Peace Bell in Shikoku, Japan

Kitaro’s music has long been renowned for its messages of peace and spirituality. In the wake of September 11, the artist began recording Sacred Journey Of Ku-kai,, an intended series of peace-themed albums (Vol. 1 released in 2003; Vol. 2 in 2005; Vol.3 in 2007), inspired by the classic Buddhist pilgrimage to the 88 sacred temples on Japan’s remote Shikoku Island, a journey taken by the beloved Buddhist monk Ku-kai over a millennium ago. “The wars of the world don’t come from outer space. People create them, people who have a war within themselves. I want to create music that eases the war within,” Kitaro says.
