Shakuhachi Meditation Music

lotus-narrow-drop-shadow.jpgA gentle, musical meditation. This piece is a live improvisation played on the Japanese shakuhachi bamboo flute. The shakuhachi flute is revered for its soothing meditative tones and it is a popular instrument in Zen meditation music.

The thing I enjoy most about playing bamboo flutes is that they are so sweet and responsive and are just as enjoyable to play as they are to listen to. In fact, the particular flute played in this piece can only be played if you're feeling relaxed. Any tension at all in the body or face means when you blow - nothing happens! So this flute is a favourite of mine for meditative playing.

Just sit back,  breath deeply, and let your mind drift along with the tones of the flute - I hope you enjoy it...
