The Japanese bamboo flute Shakuhachi belongs to the family of the notched flute. According to some legends it was brought to Japan from China in the mid 13th century by the Zen master Kakushin Shinchi (1207-1298). Since that time the Shakuhachi has been closely associated with Zen Buddhism: the first Shakuhachi players were Buddhist monks (Fuke order). Although they first used the instrument only as an acoustic signal for the recognition of their group, in the course of time they developed a special type of meditation from their Shakuhachi playing, the so-called Suizen (meditation through breathing). Blowing the flute helped the monks to control their breathing, an important form of concentration in Zen. Over the centuries, pieces of music developed from this blowing meditation. Various traditions and schools of Shakuhachi playing evolved, each with its own repertoire of honkyoku (original music). The honkyoku on this CD belong to the Myôan (bright/dark) tradition.
