Description

Over 700 years ago in Japan, Zen masters developed honkyôku, the art of blowing Zen, using only the pure tones of the simple shakuhachi bamboo flute for accompaniment. On Shakuhachi Meditation Music, virtuoso Stan Richardson offers 13 authentic bamboo flute selections, each one a soothing contemplation meant to still the mind and awaken attention.

Richardson, a former member of Japan's respected Ki-Sui-An Shakuhachi Dôjô ensemble, plays these rare works in the traditional Zen style, just as they were played for centuries by wandering monks. Selections range from spare, haunting contemplations to complex tone poems. Excellent for meditation, yoga, exercise, and bodywork.

This CD is excellent. I use it daily to accompany my morning Qigung routine. Stan has extraordinary breath control and produces beautiful intonation.

The service and the help I received to open the download was very good. I ordered another one by mistake and when i asked about it it was promptly removed from my bill.
Thanks

Excellent. Traditional Japanese flute music done in Zen meditation style. I bought this because I just wanted to relax from the mad rush of life. It makes me feel like I'm in a Japanese Zen garden.
