“Kentaro Kihara, Pianist/Composer from JAPAN welcomes you to his concert on February 21, 2015 at Portland Piano Co.”
Kentaro Kihara, an international artist, has many talents such as pianist, composer, arranger and singer will be here in Portland on Saturday, February 21 at Portland Piano Co.
Most recently he was featured at Japanese most popular music TV show “M Station”,
collaborating with a singer who was ANNA in the Disney movie “FROZEN” in Japan.
He has released eleven CDs, including his most popular album "be…".
After graduate the Berklee College of Music, Kentaro’s original music are emphasized
with warm melodies, innovative harmonies, gorgeous nuance and tasteful humor.
It has been called “Japanese impressionism.”Not only he composes music for J-POP, theater, animation, film and TV shows, also perform and record in both Japan and US.
At the upcoming concert on Feb 21st, there will be a special guest, “Tsunao Yamai”
who is the Noh-Artist.
Noh, the pride of Japanese traditional entertainment and the oldest stage art in the world,
is a discipline that expresses the elements of singing & dance, similar to European opera
and musical theater.
You as guests will see a preview of their collaboration “enishi” in Portland on the 21st.
"縁 ~enishi~" synergizes the fascinating beauty of Noh and the musical expressiveness of the piano. The collision of these two souls, beyond the walls of culture, creates a new fantastic world.
Japanese eternal dance, the melancholic melody of piano and the song of Noh intertwine
and expand into a theatre experience unlike any other.
Please note: At this event, their collaboration will be a preview of what they do, Tsunao will not be fully dressed with kimono and the special mask as you see on the website or photos, however,
we hope to bring this whole “enishi” event come alive in Portland sometime in the near future
at the large scale to share with the community.
