=============About the Shakuhachi flute=============
The Shakuhachi ( meaning 1.8 shaku and referring to the size ) was originally introduced from China into Japan in the 6th century. The shakuhachi is traditionally made of bamboo. It was used by the monks from a branch of the Zen Buddhism, and used in the practice of suizen (blowing meditation). The sound is a full, rich tone, with different possibilities for variation, like not covering the holes completely.
This recording makes use of a live sampled flute and is combined with live sampled ocean waves.
