Midori Takada is a legend in the truest meaning of the word. It's a tremendous honor for us to be able to host this musical giant for a Black Box concert.
Midori Takada is a Japanese percussion virtuoso and composer with a career spanning over four decades. She’s been a part of now legendary constellations such as Mkwaju Ensemble and made a name for herself with her sparse technical finesse. Her explorations into East Asian and West African percussion traditions have been molden into several sought after releases, where the masterpiece Through The Looking Glass (1981) have become a pièce de résistance in the world wide ambient music craze of latter years.
Takada stands firmly with one foot in the minimalist genre and in many ways, she works in the same modus as artist like Steve Reich or Philip Glass. Her other foot is, well, somewhere else, not far from the poetic soundscapes and mind bending harmonics of the fourth world genre.
