Hiroko concert tour report---
This summer, Hiroko made first concert tour in Poland in collaboration with Japanese musician Kazuya Nagaya who plays Indonesian and Chinese gongs, Japanese Buddhist instruments and Tibetan singing bowls and electric guitar.  In 4 cities Szczecin, Warsaw, Krakow and Poznan, we were so glad to meet with Polish audience and also various musicians and artists in the festivals we joined. In the first city Szczecin at Spoiwa Kultury festival (cross- cultural festival ), we played in the former Orthodox church where they had Tibetan monks chant concert, and Ukrainian group of ancient sacred songs  day before our concert. 
This our concert was named "ashita" which means in Japanese word "tomorrow".  Since this contemporary time of the world, we never knows what will happen in next moments.  In North Japan, with big pain and suffering, many people lost life, family, many things in one moment by big disaster and nuclear power plant explosion. And still hard situation is keeping on.  So the time coming next to today is so precious. We thought deeply about this...
And We have been working on this collaboration album to release. I hope to make announce  soon...
