Komuso: The Healing Art of Zen focuses on the subtle, contemplative aspects of the Japanese shakuhachi flute, using its spiralling melodies as a focus for meditation and healing. (Komuso were Zen Buddhist priests who wandered the countryside playing healing shakuhachi music called Sui-Zen). ‚ÄúPieces like ‚ÄòShizukesa,‚Äô ‚ÄòYamato-Choshi,‚Äô ‚ÄòSogei No Kyoku,‚Äô and ‚ÄòMujusin-Kyoko‚Äô are soothing and refreshing glimpses into Japanese musical tradition, regardless of whether or not they're used for meditation purposes." - All Music Guide.
