Music of the world

Etsuko Chida is a young virtuoso from Sapporo, the main city of Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost island. Singer and koto player - this zither evoking the "dragon lying on the beach and conversing with the waves" - she interprets here a selection of court poems from the 10th century ("Song of Plovers") to the 19th century ("The cranes on the pines "). Etsuko Chida currently resides in France where she has already given and will give many more concerts (Guimet Museum, France Culture, Festival Passages-Paris, Monaco, Festival "Summer Voice" - Creuse). Discover the tunes with which "the young women of the Japanese aristocracy bewitched the samurai".
