Album Review

Kitaro's double-disc An Ancient Journey is collection of gentle, ethereal compositions utilizing his unique style of performance. Blending traditional Japanese instruments with lush keyboards, Kitaro crafted some very relaxing and meditative music on this album. Like any album in this genre, this is for very specific tastes only, but this is definitely one of the superior artists working in new age music. With gorgeous melodies and a penchant for keeping things low-key, Kitaro's An Ancient Journey is a proper follow-up to 2001's Ancient that should keep fans happy and possibly gain him new followers within the genre.

not so bad!

Nice mixing of traditional Japanese and ancient Egypt sounds.

In the early '70s, Kitaro formed the Far East Family Band, which released two albums of progressive rock.
