Kitaro’s “Symphony Live in Istanbul” CD announced

Recorded Live at the Halic Congress Center in Istanbul, Turkey over two evenings in March of 2014, Grammy and Golden Globe winning artist Kitaro‘s “Symphony Live in Istanbul” CD is announced!

Commenting on the groundbreaking event, Kitaro noted “I am extremely grateful that my dream of performing in Istanbul finally came true. It was a once in a lifetime experience and in addition to my many experiences; I met a host of great people from Istanbul and the neighboring countries.  As a remembrance of my amazing music caravan and as a tribute to those I encountered along the way, I recorded this musical experience and performance as a CD.  It is my gift to everyone, in Istanbul and around the world, to experience and enjoy.”

Thanks to once-in-a-lifetime concert experience we had in Istanbul, Börü family is more than happy to pre-order the album 🙂

This album includes Kitaro’s Golden Globe award-winning theme from the Oliver Stone film “Heaven & Earth”, music from his critically acclaimed Kojiki album and “Silk Road” soundtrack as well as two compositions from his Grammy award-winning album “Thinking Of You”.  New material includes a previously unreleased composition; “Kokoro – (Part II)”.

Looking forward to seeing Kitaro in Istanbul, again…

Heaven on Earth

Atatürk Arboretum, a living heritage tree museum, is located south east of the Belgrade Forest in Istanbul. Covering 345 hectares area, it is Heaven on Earth displaying not only its local flora, but also many elected trees and plants brought from all over the world. Resembling a laboratory, the arboretum serves as a source to many researches.

Today, we had the privilege of visiting Atatürk Arboretum! Special thanks and greetings to Ico & Ümit for making this special day a wonderful one 🙂

Lo and behold! Here comes the knights of Sherwood...
