Soundscapes of Japan

Japanese shakuhachi master Kakizakai Kaoru will perform on one of the most ancient root-ended bamboo flutes of Japan: the shakuhachi. Shakuhachi dates back to the 7th Century and was used by Zen priests in Japan as a sacred instrument to reach enlightenment. In the early 1970’s the first westerners started to travel to Japan to learn the sacred music of the shakuhachi called honkyoku.
Kakizakai Kaoru is one of the few holders of an ancient lineage of players that dates back to the 1700’s. He studied under the Japanese Grand Master Yokoyama Katsuya who debuted Toru Takemitsu’s composition November Steps at the Carnegie Hall with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra under the conductor Seiji Osawa.
