Midori Takada is a masterful Japanese composer and percussionist whose output over the past 40 years weaves through solo, group and theatrical practices. Her explorations of traditional Asian and African 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).
In recent years she has made a triumphant return to concert halls internationally and has established a peerless reputation for her theatrical and deeply spiritual minimalist percussion performances, where virtuouso technique, acoustic sensibility and movement combine to create a completely unique and transformative listening experience for audiences.
