I've been learning to play the Shakuhachi and I wanted to hear someone play it masterfully. Mr. Rodriguez plays the Shakuhacki masterfully and soulfully. I like this CD very much.

This is an excellent shakuhachi CD. The songs are simple yet inspirational to a shakuhachi player. He plays with an exceptional ability to make a few notes very moving.

Among the rustle of newly risen leaves
An inviting sound suddenly appeared

What can be said about meditation? This question is not easy. But what in particular can be said about Shakuhachi meditation? This question can come to a deadlock because how can be described the rustle of spring wind? Or how can be expressed your innermost dream? You just stay alone and you are in the present moment. You feel the blowing of the soft wind and even hear its special sound. But there is a silence inside of you and it can hardly be described by words.

Your mind becomes purified. It is not filled with anxieties and the numerous problems of everyday life and you are able to feel your own essence. The Shakuhachi flute of Rodrigo Rodriguez helps you to achieve this clear state of mind.

He is a true master of playing the traditional Japanese end-blown bamboo flute which is named Shakuhachi. His manner of performing is deeply personal and meditative. The sound of Rodrigo's Shakuhachi is very rich and at the same time transparent. And the voice of this unique ethnic instrument brings much love because it comes from the bottom of the artist's heart.

The music of the album by Rodrigo Rodriguez will be perfect for meditation and deep relaxation. It is easy to listen to "Shakuhachi Meditations" and just be at one with this music because it is very natural.

Yet only in the silence
A mind can find solutions

I know it is too cheesy and over used but to me the best way to describe the music is simply very Zen. In fact I use it for my meditation practice. This music transports me to a deep spiritual dimension that I could not reach before.
