Kohachiro Miyata (from ‘Shakuhachi: The Japanese Flute’)

Recorded during a visit to the U.S. in 1976 by Miyata and the Ensemble Nipponia, this album is a beguiling introduction not just to the singular sound of the end-blown shakuhachi flute, but to the aesthetics of honkyoku music — the meditative, Zen music that alternates with introspective silence. The effect is magical.
