Musik Kugel​



Musik Kugelは​、瑠璃(二十五絃箏・十三絃箏)と神田晋一郎(ピアノ・作曲)のユニット。この二人ならではのMusik Kugelオリジナル曲に加え、日本の古典、西洋音楽、現代音楽、即興、等を演奏します。

The 13 stringed koto, which has created Japan's unique music, and the 25 stringed koto, which is both new and a throwback to an ancient instrument, are imbued with the eternal flow of time of a wide range of regions from Asia to the Middle East. By encountering these instruments with Western keyboard instruments, you may hear new sounds that you are not used to hearing in classical musical works, or you may feel nostalgic in new music.

Musik Kugel is a unit consisting of Ruli (25 stringed koto, 13 stringed koto) and Shin-ichiro Kanda (piano/composition). In addition to Musik Kugel's original music, they will perform Japanese classical music, Western music, contemporary music, improvisation, etc.
