Aoidh: Japanese Girls Folk Trio
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Imagine Karen Matheson singing Japanese-Ainu traditional songs at Royal Opera House in a Scottish soundscape, backed by Pink Floyd and Martha Argerich. Imagine Scottish-Gaelic folk songs performed by Sarah Brightman, King Crimson and Chick Corea. Imagine Madame Butterfly meets Coldplay and Fazil Say in the Outer Hebrides. Scottish-Gaelic and Japanese-Ainu folk songs from world acclaimed soloists Alana (guitar), Chihiro (piano) and Erica (soprano). Atmospheric, ethereal, appealing traditional folk songs, with a touch of improvisation. Think Karen Matheson singing Japanese songs in a Scottish soundscape!
