Tokyo sur Dordogne | Music of the World

Friday August 4  9.00 PM / Church  of Tayac | Les Eyzies

When the delicate melody of flutes merges with the staccato  of the koto, one enters, as if by magic,  into a deep and mysterious world intimately uniting earth and heaven.  When Occitan and Japanese song intertwine with force and fervour, one experiences moments of grace and subtlety which captivate and uplift the soul irresistibly. When two ancient and distant cultures meet and combine in the present with as much poetry and beauty, one may dream of a more tolerant humanity more open to the world.

Fumie Hihara: koto, voice
