The Epic Collection is a 4-DVD Box Set that features three critically acclaimed concert performances by the Golden Globe and Grammy Award-winning music icon, Kitaro. It also includes “Kojiki And The Universe,” a film that intertwines Kitaro’s music with space-age time-lapse video provided by and in cooperation with NASA and Kyoto University.
Kojiki: A Story In Concert
Kitaro crafts this musical journey from the ancient chronicle that recounts the birth of Japan and its people. The video captures a memorable performance from Kitaro’s 1990 world-tour.
An Enchanted Evening
An Enchanted Evening takes its cue from nature and spirit. Full and dramatic, yet surprisingly intimate, Kitaro transports the listener on a far-reaching musical journey that draws refrains of East meets West. Filmed during concert tour of America in 1995.
Daylight Moonlight: Live In Yakushiji
In a special event for world peace, Kitaro and his ensemble performed at the magnificent Yakushiji temple for a first-ever concert there. The revered shrine is also the final resting place of Genjo Sanzo, who’s journey on the ancient Silk Road more than a millennium ago, inspired the performance.
Kojiki And The Universe
Presenting a totally unique visual experience, the video presentation of “Kojiki And The Universe” merges Kitaro’s Grammy nominated music from the album “Kojiki” with space-age photographic scenes of the Universe. “Kojiki And The Universe” features time-lapse images, expertly intertwined with real-time films provided by and in cooperation with NASA and Kyoto University.
