Carlos has recently participated in the soundtrack to “Gedo Senki” (Tales from EarthSea), an animation movie from the legendary Studio Ghibli that has been a huge success in Japan. This is Goro Miyasaki’s first movie.
Ghibli were so happy about Carlos’s participation that they even commissioned him to make a full album based on the movie and its soundtrack. It is called “Melodies from Gedo Senki”.
The album will be presented next May 9 at Tokyo NHK concert hall. Carlos will have as special guests the great Akiko Yano, as well as Gedo Senki’s composer Tamiya Terashima and Aoi Teshima singer of the movie’s theme.
Carlos is on tour in Japan at the moment. The tour is called “Image”, a concept that brings together musicians and their image related works, such as movie soundtracks or TV commercials. Carlos is the only non-Japanese artist on tour, surrounded by big Japanese instrumental music stars.
Carlos will have his own tour in Japan next October.
