Masterful Japanese percussionist with a fascination with traditional African and Asian percussive language. Midori Takada's output over the past 40 years weaves through solo, group and theatrical practices.
Takada’s work is born of a distinctly Japanese ceremonial and meditative musical sensibility, while also aligning itself with the ambient and Fourth World music explored by Jon Hassell, Don Cherry and Brian Eno. Her music has a crystalline quality that distils rhythms from around the world into transfixing minimalist dreamscapes.
