Synopsis

Album Description
Gaia Onbashira is a musical exploration of respect and how it relates to ancient traditions. Gaia loosely translates to Goddess of the Earth or Mother Earth and Onbashira is a festival that occurs every seven years in Japan. During the Onbashira festival, eight individuals are chosen for spiritually cleansing. The participants ascend a mountain and attempt to spiritually connect with the heavens through the trees. These trees are then allowed to fall down the mountain and eventually become posts and the foundation of a ceremonial shrine. Through these events, these individuals learn to become more in touch with their spirits. This album is a far-reaching journey that brings together influences of the East and West, past and present, history and future. These tracks resonate with earthly sounds and the history embodied in pre-Columbian wind and percussion instruments.

CD Reviews

The sounds of nature
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 05/31/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Kitaro CD is one of the lushest, most ravishing of all. A fusion of spirit and nature. If there was music in the Garden of Eden, this would be it. It is the essence of Mother Earth singing to us."
A winner, on all levels
Urban Medic | 02/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I only began doing dynamic meditation about a month ago (Jan 10, 2000), and I have been a fan of Kitaro since about 1989, but imagine my surprise when the one directing the initial meditations used Kitaro! Anyway, I picked up this CD just to supplement my library of meditation music, and was pleasantly surprised with the power and feeling behind the music. If you're looking for a great CD that truly evokes a nature-loving consciousness, this is it!"
The Best Natural Music Full of Magick
Roy L. Daman | Kings Mountain, North Carolina USA | 07/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"His music flows and ebbs in so many ways. He is the master of his art and is one of the better composers of this time. Your mind can take the journey into a realm that is not quite human, but is deeply moving and spiritual. It envolves the mind, body and spirit which he implements to the fullest to make the best mixture of nature, music and spirit. I could not recommend a better CD to anyone who wants to relax or meditate and feel the moods of emotion that he lets the listener become a part of. Music this good should be shared by all."
