The Mind of Zen in Music
The shakuhachi flute can be as expressive as the human voice—it can evoke the sound of gentle rain, the quiet rustle of a breeze through a bamboo grove, or the soft rush of wings as a heron takes flight. Most of all, when played by a master, the shakuhachi captures the quality of stillness—the essence of meditation itself. With Shakuhachi Flute Meditations, Grand Master Riley Lee presents an album of his most soothing selections, with original and traditional compositions to create an atmosphere of spacious serenity. Melodic and tranquil, this music is an ideal accompaniment for meditation, the healing arts, t'ai chi—and anyone who wishes to hear the Zen mind expressed in music.
