After a significant 7-year hiatus that has left fans eagerly anticipating his return, the legendary Japanese musician Kitaro is set to grace the stages of Singapore once again. This time, he’s bringing with him not just the iconic melodies that have defined his career, but also a treasure trove of musical gems that have never been performed live. And in a partnership that promises to elevate the experience, Cristofori Music School is proud to announce its role as the official music school partner for this unforgettable concert series!

As Kitaro notes, “For many years, I have always strived to create a memorable and exciting spiritual live concert experience with breathtaking visuals. This time I intended to delve deeper into my past and include music in this tour that I have not performed anywhere previously. I am grateful and appreciative to those in my audiences that have supported me throughout many decades. These performances will reflect my heartfelt delight and appreciation of those many years and many enthusiastic audiences.”

Kitaro’s music transcends genres, blending classical, jazz, rock, new age, and world music into a unique sonic tapestry. His breakthrough came in 1980 with the soundtrack for “The Silk Road: The Rise And Fall Of Civilizations,” a series that introduced his enchanting compositions to an international audience. Since then, Kitaro has continued to push the boundaries of music, earning Grammy nominations and awards, including one for “Thinking Of You” in 2001.

His collaborations with artists like Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead and Jon Anderson of Yes have further enriched his musical legacy. Kitaro’s work extends beyond albums to include soundtracks like “Ancient,” “Spiritual Garden,” “Impressions Of The West Lake,” and “Final Call,” all of which reflect his profound reverence for nature and his quest for spiritual growth.

In 2016, Kitaro collaborated with NASA and Kyoto University to create the “Kojiki And The Universe” film which featured time-lapse images and real-time scenes of the Universe expertly intertwined with his music.

Kitaro continues to produce the remaining albums of the Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai series. His intention behind the series is to shine a light on an inspirational musical message to unify our cultures, consciousness and spiritual growth. A new and untitled live album with accompanying video will be released in late 2024 by Domo Records.

The upcoming “The Best Of Kitaro World Tour” is not just a celebration of his greatest hits like “Matsuri,” “Silk Road,” and “Reimei”; it’s also an introduction to unreleased live performances that will delight both long-time fans and newcomers alike.
