Amazingly soothing for the ears, to invigorate the spirits and the worn out bodies. It is that of the shakuhachi flute, a simple piece of bamboo pierced with a few holes, with a bevelled notch as a mouthpiece. The instrument has probably been introduced in Japan from China in the late 7th or early 8th century. Teruhisa Fukuda says he found this sound when he first heard it on the radio. As of then he has been playing it for nearly fifty years and has become one of its masters. Here he performs pieces from the repertoire of the Fuke sect of Zen Buddhism, dating from the 17th century (Edo period). After an album published on Ocora Radio France in 2003, this one, published by the Museum of Ethnography of Geneva, brings a new testimony of his lightning talent.
