This upbeat music was com...The pulse of captivating and ear-catching dance rhythms forms the foundation for these hauntingly melodic and evocative soundscapes. The compositions are expertly balanced by an intricate interlacing of ancient Japanese instruments and singing. Beyond the Circle is an uplifting statement of honed perfection. A masterful melding of the latest electronic textures with the most spiritual of Asian musical history.
This upbeat music was composed, produced and performed by Osamu Kitajima and Chris Mancinelli. It also features vocalist Nanako Mikado singing traditional Geisha songs, the expressive playing of shakuhachi master Masakazu Yoshizawa, and WILCO guitar legend Nels Cline.
