A long RO away

Well, it's been quite a long time since I've blogged here, but I haven't been inactive in the shakuhachi world.
Of note was a great concert I did in August in Vancouver with good friends Joseph Pepe Danza and Alcvin Ramos at Prana Yoga School.  It was a Soundwave type performance made popular by Pepe whereby the three of us started the show and played continuously until the end about 2 hours later.  We did a mix of pieces interspersed by solos and improvisations on a variety of lengths of shakuhachi, multiple persussion instruments and Al's Tenkan (an overtone shakuhachi developed by him.)

The concert was entitled Zen Take Tabi which loosely translated means Zen Bamboo Trip and that was pretty much the sentiment that we went into the performance with.
There should be some video coming up soon of this show done by videographer Don Xaliman
This is a kakejiku done by friend and artist Nogami Reizan for the show.  It says Zen Take Tabi.
