Undoubtedly the best show I have seen at Urbanguild – or indeed in Kyoto, Resonance 2010 was an extraordinary collaborative display of pure gold shiny talent by the dancers, singers and musicians who took part. A big bravo to them all and to the organiser Daniel Rosen for creating this unforgettable event. My only regret is that I didn’t go both nights and my only complaint is that I have to wait a whole year until the next one. Here are some images and videos of the event to give you a wee taste of the magic that we saw on Saturday night.
Here is taiko player Takahito Nishino – this builds up into something very special and super intense!!
A song by Mio Matsuda accompanied by Yasutaka Yorozu (bass), Takahito Nishino (taiko), Kaoru Watanabe (flute), ryotaro (accordion), and Tamango (dance).
Our old friends Mitsu Salmon and ryotaro do their thing with a little help from Kaoru Watanabe.
Dance from Tamango with the other Resonance cast members. This guy was amazing and later on treated us to a display of shoeless tap-dancing (yes! no shoes! but unfortunately I didn’t get that on video…).
Here are some pictures. Click on them for a closer look.
Awesome! I love reading about all these Kyoto events. Not living in Kyoto, I tend to only hear about them after they happen. Do you happen to have a link to an events listings site?

Ah, no. Not a perfect one. I ould check out Kansai Scene for events: http://www.kansaiscene.com/current/html/home.shtml, Kyoto Visitor’s Guide for cultural stuff: http://www.kyotoguide.com/ver2/thismonth/top.htm and this site is pretty useful too:
