violin); Shinji Ebihara, Keiko Takahashi (keyboards).
Recorded live at Yakushiji Temple, Nara, Japan in 2001.
In the seventh century CE Genjo Sanzo walked the length of the Silk Road from Japan to India and back, bringing with him the scriptures that introduced Buddhism to Japan and China. On this live two-disc album, recorded at the monastery where Genjo's ashes are harbored, Kitaro attempts to capture the passions that sustained the monk on his long journeys.
The album opens with the somber, unadorned chanting of the Yakushiji monks. As with most of his studio albums, DAYLIGHT, MOONLIGHT finds Kitaro effortlessly bridging the traditional and the forward-thinking, particularly on songs such as "Hazimari/Sozo" and "Estrella." The standout track, "Mercury," originally featured on his Grammy Award-winning album THINKING OF YOU, finds his flute gliding over a sparse industrial landscape. In all, a strong set that lives up to the story of the monk who inspired it.
