Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LOS ANGELES - May 10, 2018 - With an eye toward exploration and re-imagination of some of its core catalog, Domo Music Group has released a five song EP by recording artist Dino Malito. The tracks are acoustic versions of early, iconic compositions by New Age Grammy and Golden-Globe award winner, Kitaro.
Rather than utilizing Kitaro’s trademark style — an array of synthesizers — this EP takes the original music masters on a transformational journey through the use of acoustic guitars, ukulele, mandolin, dulcimer and shamisen textured with David Gilmour-esque guitar leads. Kitaro fans will be comforted to hear some of their most cherished melodies and themes while allowing Malito to bring them on a unique and tasteful voyage that breathes new life into these beloved classics.
01. Great Voyage
04. Silk Road
When recording an album for Captain Black Heart (‘Budgie’), a colleague suggested we should consider rearranging some of Kitaro’s tracks with a ukulele. With layers of guitars, the music started to have a life of its own. After finishing the rough mixes and playing the tracks for a few people, it was clear this would be worthy of a Domo Music Group release. One of the first tracks completed was ‘Great Voyage,’ the first song on the EP. I was pleased to find Kitaro felt it was a very beautiful version of the composition. That positive feedback inspired me to complete the project.
All songs arranged, performed and produced by Dino Malito.
