World Tour 1990
This full-length concert was performed again live in 1994 at
Tokyo Bay. This concert was performed in December, at night,
with the backdrop of a one million dollar spectacular fireworks
display during the show. Fuji filmed the event, and it was
televised in Japan, but the video was never made public.
However, the available 55-minute video is a dramatic visual of
the famous, now classic Kojiki World Tour Performance.
KOJIKI: A Story in Concert
Kitaro masterfully conceived and performed
the music for Kojiki based on this famous Japanese ancient
chronicle of the creation of Japan (Yamato). The music was
originally released by Amuse America as a German import in 1990
and was nominated for a Grammy that same year. This album was
digitally re-mastered in 1996. In July 2003, this classic was
re-mastered as a Super Audio CD to provide the ultimate sound
when played on an SACD player or normal sound on a CD player.
The album, or video, features Kitaro's signature sound of the
Musician's Magician, along with the string section from the
Skywalker Symphony, the score to this thematic backdrop is full
of passion, beauty and drama. The album includes a three-page
synopsis of this famous Japanese myth.
This 1990 world tour concert was accompanied by a beautiful 36
page book printed on premium paper depicting copies of old
Japanese prints of this famous myth. This tour book has been
printed in both Japanese and English.
