Shakuhachi & Composer

I like music in general. I like playing and listening to it. Everything is so interesting: guitars, flutes, drums and percussions. But once upon a time I heard a voice of the magical flute. I didn’t know the name of the instrument so I had to ask my friend. He said it was Japanese shakuhachi flute. I fell in love! I started to learn Japanese music, gave up smoking, created a Russian Shakuhachi Society and found a lot of new friends. In 2012 I have took part in World Shakuhachi Festival in Kyoto. If you are into a proper activity everything happens itself!
