Konnichiwa! minasan,
Hello, all!

The November 2009 meeting of the Japanese Cluture Salon, the monthly series of presentations on Japanese culture hosted by the Japan-America Society of Greater Austin, will feature a presentation on the Shakuhachi, the Japanese bamboo flute.

The Shakuhachi developed as a method of Zen mediation and is also used in Japanese classical ensemble music (Hogaku) together with the Shamisen and Koto.

Shakuhachi Presentation

David Duncavage has many years of experience performing, teaching, and making Shakuhachi. In 1989, after several years of study in Kyoto, Japan, he received the "Shihan" (Independent Master's license) in Hogaku and Zen meditation music from the world renowned Shakuahchi Master, Kurahashi Yoshio.
In addition to playing Shakuhachi music from different traditions, he will explain how the flutes are made and its unique character based musical notation.

At the conclusion of the evening, he will have some extra flutes on hand for those interested in trying to play the Shakuhachi.
