Event in Madrid – UMU Dar a Luz -

After three years, I´m back to Madrid to perform. This is a collaboration with my friends, dancer Makiko Sese and a master of shakuhachi Antonio Enzan Olías

UMU – Dar a Luz - is the very first project of Kotodama series, which Sese and I like to contienue performing as a series. 

UMU – Dar a Luz is inspired by a Buddhist monk, Ippen Shonin (一遍上人) who formed Odori Nenbutsu (踊り念仏), which is a prayer to the Buddha with dance. Also he opened his temple to not only the noble people but to everyone, poor people and women. He claimed that the God wasn´t only one figure but was everywhere, over all in the nature. His teaching is shown in his word below.

よろず生きとし 生けるもの

​山河草木 ふく風


念仏ならずと いふことなし


All the living things,

mountains, rivers, plants and trees, even blowing wind

and the sound of the waves,

there is nothing else but Nenbutsu


If we could appreciate everything around us, our world would be a little more kind and easier place to live.
