Yoshida Brothers 15th Anniversary Special vol. 6: Prism

To celebrate their 15th Anniversary, we offer a special promotion on each album every 15 days.

Until August 15th, we will be featuring 2009 released album “Prism”YB_15thbanner_vol.6

On Prism, Yoshida Brothers have collaborated with some notable talents, such as Southern California singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop, who wrote the Celtic-tinged “One Long River” and David Baerwald, the singer-songwriter who provided the whimsical track “Mr. Nagano’s Foolish Proposal”. And “Summer Day” marks a collaboration with keyboardist and producer Mitchell Froom (writer of the Yoshida Brothers’ “Hit Song”) with additional songwriting contributions from drummer Matt Chamberlain (Tori Amos, Edie Brickell) and Phantom Planet vocalist Alex Greenwald.

This album stand-outs fit comfortably alongside more traditional examples of Japanese folk like “Hu Jin” and “Aiya,” plus the Brothers’ inspired cover of “The National Anthem” from Radiohead’s Kid A. The album’s final track, “End of the World,” was featured on the soundtrack to the Mark Wahlberg/Joaquin Phoenix film, We Own the Night, further enhancing the Yoshida Brothers’ profile in America.

Halo, Purely for Pets, the natural pet food company co-owned by Ellen DeGeneres, is a sponsor of the Boston GreenFest and the proud sponsor of the Olate Dogs’ 2014 -2015 Rescue Tour. Most of the Olate Dogs are rescue dogs and their tour, which includes their appearances at the Boston GreenFest, is designed to raise awareness for pet adoption.

To further their adoption message, the Olate Dogs and Halo recently produced a short film, “Le Sauvetage” (The Rescue) with acclaimed filmmaker, Peter McEvilley. Le Sauvetage, a magical tale for anyone who’s ever been rescued by a pet, will appear in the Boston GreenFest Filmfest. Le Sauvetage has delighted pet lovers around the globe, opening the Sonoma Film Festival in April and appearing at Court Metrage, Festival de Cannes in France in May. View the latest FilmFest schedule here: http://www.bostongreenfest.org/filmfest.html

And, as part of the Olate Dogs Rescue Tour, Halo, in partnership with Freekibble.com, will donate 20,000 meals of its natural pet food to local shelters and rescues to help provide high quality food to homeless pets in the Boston area. The partnership donates 1.5 million meals a year to pets in need across the nation.

Kitaro New Release from his latest European tour!

Since Kitaro visited European countries with his Symphonic World Tour in February and March, we have received so many requests to release its live album.  Now, we are very delighted and excited to announce that we WILL release it this September!

Official release date is September 9th.  But we will offer a special pre-order soon.
Stay tuned with us!

Symphony Live In Istanbul

1500

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 marks 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).”

Commenting on the groundbreaking event, Kitaro noted “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

Yoshida Brothers 15th Anniversary Special vol. 5: Hishou

To celebrate their 15th Anniversary, we offer a special promotion on each album every 15 days.

We are featuring their 2007 released (US) album “Hishou” until July 31st.

YB_15thbanner_vol.5

This album is just pure shamisen virtuosity. They didn’t use any other instruments like Guitars or Taiko Drum.
Yoshida Brothers covered some of their original songs, traditional Japanese songs, and played new songs on this album.

HISHOU (“flying” or “souring” in Japanese) continues the exploration of marrying new phrasings to traditional sounds. The result is at once sentimental and respectful of the past, while also forging a sonic bridge to the future. Having explored rock and world music themes in previous releases, this album marks a return to basics for the brothers, highlighting their commitment to and reverence for the historic art of Tsugaru-Shamisen.
