Theatrical waves of rhythm invoked by a maestro of Japanese percussion. Transcendent solo performance beyond comparison.
Midori Takada

Verdant utopias, meditative caves and abundant life. Japanese percussionist Midori Takada invokes entire ecosystems—her music connecting mind and soul to tree and soil.

Takada’s now re-issued debut solo album Through the Looking Glass is considered an essential recording of minimalist music. Don’t expect to hear this work though, Takada is constantly pushing forward. A rebel and innovator, Takada abandoned her Western classical training to study drumming in Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire, and the intricate delicacy of Gamelan music in Bali. Takada is a cult artist, whose reputation continues to grow as new generations discover her music.

Now 70 years of age, Takada is a maestro. Wielding xylophone, marimba, gongs and theatrical physicality, her performances go beyond the musical to transcend through rhythm. Part of RISING's Japan in Focus program.

Supporting Midori Takadam is the Filipino-American ambient composer Ana Roxanne. In her Australian debut, Roxanne draws from her small but mighty catalogue—the 2015 EP ~~~ and 2020 album Because of a Flower—that touches on musical traditions across jazz, new age, Hindustani, choral and electronic.
