Kitaro Garners His 17th Grammy Award Nomination

Kitaro Garners His 17th Grammy Award Nomination


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) For the 17th time, Golden Globe and Grammy-Award winning composer, musician and recording artist Kitaro has captured a Grammy Award Nomination for this year's 60th anniversary of the Grammy Awards. Kitaro's Best New Age Album Grammy nomination is for his full-length album release entitled Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai, Volume 5.

Commenting on his Grammy nomination, Kitaro said, "I want to thank all of the Grammy, NARAS and Recording Academy members and voters, as well the entire Domo Records team for making this my 17th Grammy Award nomination a reality. I am extremely proud of this project and am pleased to have it received in such a positive manner."

Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai Volume 5 follows the highly acclaimed Volumes 1 through 4 of the series, all of which have earned Grammy nominations. The Ku-Kai series concept arose after the global events on the fateful day of September 11, 2001. Kitaro was traveling on a jet from Japan to Los Angeles when the transcontinental flight was diverted to Hawaii for five days due to the tragedy. It was during this time of disbelief and uncertainty that Kitaro envisioned the Ku-Kai series as a means of uniting the world through music embracing his frequently referenced universal message of peace.

The Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai Volume 5 release is an earthly voyage that transports the listener to Shikoku, Japan. It pays homage to the beloved Buddhist holy man Ku-Kai who traveled the 750 mile long pilgrimage to the eighty-eight sacred temples on the island over 1100 years ago. Each track on the album revolves around an audio sample of the bell sound from each temple. With these bell sounds, Kitaro distills their essences with inspired musical interpretations.

The final round of Grammy voting takes place from December 7th through the 21st. The Recording Academy will present the Grammy Awards on Sunday January 28th live from Madison Square Garden in New York. The festivities will be broadcast on the CBS Television Network from 7:30-1100pm Eastern Time and 4:30-8:00pm Pacific Time.
