Dr. Niibori on the off day
After this concert tour, people who were moved by the sound of the guitar orchestra started forming guitar orchestras in their country. For example, Dr. J. Cardoso got guitarists together and formed "Madrid Niibori Guitar Orchestra". Then, the news stimulated people in the central and south America, and guitar orchestras by Niibori Method were formed in El Salvador and Costa Rica. Actually, I have listened to their performance by cassette tapes and they were so wonderful and impressive.
By the request of a records company in Spain, Niibori Guitar Orchestra unexpectedly recorded their performance and released LP and a cassette tape titled "Remembrance of Alhambra" there. They are still in a souvenir shop in the Alhambra Palace and everywhere in Spain. It is interesting that Japanese tourists buy them as a souvenir in Spain while they don't know.
