Grammy and Golden-Globe Winning Composer and Musician Kitaro, Performs at Marina Bay Sands for One Night

 Marina Bay Sands, BASE Entertainment and JP Entertainment today announces a one-night only performance by the Grammy award-winning Japanese musician, composer and multi-instrumentalist Kitaro. The performance is scheduled for 13 April at the Grand Theater at Marina Bay Sands. Tickets are on sale now.

Kitaro is one of the founding architects of the New Age music category and movement, with various sound collaborations and resonant, multi-textured compositions which truly defy the constraints of any genre. The Grammy and Golden Globe-winner has garnered global acclaim over a more than three decade long career with a signature sound and a pioneering fusion of cultures, techniques and spheres of consciousness that are truly his own.

This incredibly prolific composer and performer has continued his reign in the international spotlight and at the forefront of musical innovation ever since the release of his debut solo album, Astral Voyage, in 1978.

Influenced early on by American rock and R&B, Kitaro began experimenting with synthesizers and a rainbow of unconventional sounds in the mid-'70s. His pioneering fusion of electronic artistry, traditional Japanese forms, and pop-inflected Western idioms created a lush, harmonic, and poetic sound that won the now legendary artist a huge international following.

Kitaro recently landed his 14th Grammy Nomination for the 53rd Grammy Awards. The legendary artist was honored in the Best New Age Album Category for his work, Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai Volume 4.

His numerous recording highlights include 1980's Volume 1 in the revered Silk Road series which is considered an all-time masterpiece with subsequent volumes only adding to its luster, 1987's The Light of the Spirit (a collaboration with Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart and Kitaro's American breakthrough), 2000's Thinking Of You, which won a Grammy for Best New Age Album, as well as Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai, a multi-volume series of albums inspired by the tragedy of 9/11.
