Midori Takada

No Longer Available

Midori Takada is a Japanese percussionist whose output over the past 40 years weaves through solo, group and theatrical practices. Her deep quests into traditional African and Asian percussive language are captured on a series of now highly sought after albums including her masterpiece Through The Looking Glass (1981/RCA) and her collaboration with Masahiko Satoh Lunar Cruise (1990/Epic-Sony), both of which will be reissued on Swiss label WRWTFWW in 2017.

In chime with the peak period ambient and Fourth World musics explored by Jon Hassell, Don Cherry and Brian Eno, but born of a distinctly Japanese ceremonial and meditative musical sensibility, her work has a crystalline quality that distills rhythms from around the world into transfixing minimalist dreamscapes.
