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.
