Like a Bird

cd-like-a-bird-01Like a Bird is Satsuki Odamura’s first CD. Since arriving in Australia less than a decade ago she has introduced the koto into contemporary performance here, and she is now in great demand. Her playing is dramatic and engaging, successfully integrating traditional and modern techniques. For this CD she has gathered around her some of the musicians in Australia most fascinated by the meeting of East and West in music.

“Satsuki Odamura’s disc is especially welcome in that it is devoted entirely to 20th-century music, and features the instrument in various and varied settings. (Flying Like a Bird) is at once recognisably Japanese, very lyrical and immediately pleasing to Western ears, nicely unusual and beautifully played. (improvisations). Some remarkable playing by percussionist Ian Cleworth. As is usually the case with Tall Poppies releases, the music has been recorded and presented well.”
