KA-GU-LA: Ritual of the Wind

 Michiko Akao

Akao observes that "performing artists blow a new wind through closed societies. They are the modern-day shamans who use their bodies as the medium to link people to the natural world." Yokobue (transverse bamboo flutes) master, Michiko Akao, and percussionist, Midori Takada, perform music evocative of ancient Japanese traditions - from folk songs to the kagura, the rites of music and dance used to invoke the presence of deities and from which form emerges the very basis of Japan's performing arts.
