LOS ANGELES, CA (December 5, 2014) – Another Grammy Nomination has been landed by the founder of the New Age genre, Kitaro.

He’s performed all over the world many times. Now, Grammy and Golden Globe-winning Artist Kitaro has received his 16th Grammy Nomination for a project recorded LIVE with a full-orchestra entitled, Kitaro – “Symphony Live in Istanbul”.

The acclaimed artist debuted his extensive all-new live production with a full-orchestra on Feb 14th of 2013 with the Santa Rosa Symphony at Weill Hall at the Green Music Center in Rohnert Park, CA. The live symphonic concert production then hit the international circuit with stops in Warsaw, Moscow, Bucharest, Istanbul and other historic and amazing international locations.

Commenting on the Grammy nomination, Kitaro said, “It has always been my dream to perform with a full orchestra in these beautiful and historic cities. This Grammy Nomination is very special to me.”

Kitaro added “In 1980, I began composing and producing music about the passageway and excursions of the Silk Road. This past spring, I embarked upon my first Symphonic Tour that reached Russia, Eastern and Central Europe and had the distinct pleasure of performing in Istanbul; a place where from ancient times to modern times, has flourished as an important hub of the Silk Road where Europe and Asia meet.”

“I am extremely grateful that my dream of performing in Istanbul finally came true. It was a once in a lifetime experience and in addition to my many experiences; I met a host of great people from Istanbul and the neighboring countries. As a remembrance of my amazing music caravan and as a tribute to those I encountered along the way, I recorded this musical experience and performance as a CD. It is my gift to everyone, in Istanbul and around the world, to experience and enjoy.

Kitaro – “Symphony Live in Istanbul” was recorded live at the Halic Congress Center in Istanbul, Turkey over two evenings in March of 2014. Grammy and Golden Globe winning artist Kitaro’s “Symphony Live in Istanbul” is breathtaking. The album features new musical material while also including eight of the acclaimed artist’s most requested and popular compositions.

This amazing performance marked Kitaro’s first-ever recording for the Domo Music Group balancing the artists trademark signature sound and expanding it to new heights with the addition of a full live symphony orchestra.

This album includes Kitaro’s Golden Globe award-winning theme from the Oliver Stone film “Heaven & Earth,” music from his critically acclaimed Kojiki album and “Silk Road” soundtrack as well as two compositions from his Grammy award-winning album “Thinking of You.” New material includes a previously unreleased composition, “Kokoro (Part II).”

Featured Song: A Thousand Winds by Yukiko Haneda

fadista “A Thousand Winds” from the 2010 album Fadista is based on a famous American Poem,” Do not stand at my grave and weep”.

Japanese award winner novelist MAN ARAI translated and made into this beautiful song.

Man Arai send this song to Yukiko in 2003. It took time for her to figure it out the best key and arrangement for this song . Recorded in 2007.

Here is the original poem:

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;

I am not there. I did not die.
