Japanese nationwide TV featured Kitaro for their famous documentary series about professionals from various different fields. In the TV program, Kitaro had explored Nagara-gawa (one of the biggest rivers in Japan) from its source to both Pacific Ocean and Sea Of Japan and built his images to create songs which were played in the program. After the on-air, they were flooded with inquiries about songs.
This led them to produce the album including 3 unreleased songs. Kitaro shows the appreciation for nature by expressing both magnificent flow and dynamism of nature as it is.
Word from Kitaro
We have the eternal circulation of nature since the Mother earth was born. Rain falls in the mountain and the river flows to the ocean, where ocean water evaporates and goes back to the mountains. We live in the world of circulation. We need a better understanding of not taking for granted of Mother Natures gift to us.
