Shakuhachi – The Sound of the Soul

The shakuhachi is a testament to the elegance of traditional Japanese culture, and produces a sound that is said to replicate the full range of natural life on earth. I love the sound and meditative quality of this Japanese bamboo flute, and used it in Elegy for a Cherry Tree. In this song it complements my voice and carries us through grief to the beauty of new life — a philosophy that permeates the belief systems of Asia. Listen to Lotus Dreams
