Drawing on the tradition of Japanese folk songs as well as that of the original shakuhachi music, Masayuki Koga here creates a rich collection of improvisational pieces.

Misty - Japanese Magic Flute Misty - Japanese Magic Flute

This recording of solo shakuhachi music represents a dimension of improvisation, not only for shakuhachi but for all flute music as well. While the sound and essence of the music dwell within the traditional realm of shakuhachi music, string currents of other music contribute to from the whole : the hopeful contentment of the Japanese folksong, the elegant clarity and balance of Classical music embraced by rhythms both familiar and new. All of these diverse elements combine gracefully to form a truly new shakuhachi sound.
