The Global Soul

On Saturday, we went to see Toru Yamanaka (file photo below) take part in 'The Global Soul - The Buddha Project' at the ICA in London. His soundtrack for the event was very inspiring & restful yet frenetic in parts. Reflecting the life of the modern traveller; traveller in life and in spirit. This production included Korean and Chinese singers, a Swedish actress, Nigerian-French dancer and a former Buddhist monk, interweaving their dance, speech and vocalisations around Toru's music and sound effects. Toru was assisted by Shinya Watanabe, video artist and technician.
