One of the most versatile masters of the koto, Michiyo Yagi has performed in rock bands, jazz groups, movie soundtracks, classical ensembles, noise improvisations and of course Japanese traditional and folk groups. Here, using both orthodox and unorthodox techniques, she takes the koto to an exciting new world of her own invention incorporating influences from traditional Japanese and Korean music as well as the American maverick tradition of Partch, Cage, Nancarrow and Terry Riley.

Astounding new music for an ancient instrument by one of the world’s most adventurous and accomplished contemporary koto players.
