Shakuhachi Unleashed Vol. I
is on its way. Campaign contributors will get it in March, the rest of the globe in April.
Thanks Mark, Nakona, Karen, Derek and all of you out there in holy flute land.
Breath wizardry and alive musicality: these are solo performances on shakuhachi, Taimu (bass) shakuhachi and vocals. They consist of original compositions written by Cornelius for the Taimu shakuhachi (mukyoku); pieces from the traditional Japanese repertoire (folk songs, court music, nature music and Buddhist chant [honkyoku] compositions); and additional pieces culled from other inspiring sources including theme music, blues, and classic rock. Among the artists featured in this “cover song” category are: Zamfir, Elmore James, Junior Kimbrough, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Lamb of God.
