Top composer suffers second cancermain
The universally acclaimed Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto has undergone surgery for bowel cancer, a little over six years after receiving treatment for cancer of the throat.
Sakamoto, who turned 69 last week, writes on his website: ‘I will continue to work as much as I can during treatment … From now on, I will be living alongside cancer. But, I am hoping to make music for a little while longer.’
We wish him a full recovery.
