Album Notes
Bruno Deschenes is a shakuhachi player as well as an ethnomusicologist from Montreal, Quebec. The shakuhachi is the well-known Japanese bamboo flute that was played almost exclusively by a sect of wandering buddhist monks, the Fuke sect. A large number of ronin, or masterless samurai, joined the ranks of the Fuke sect. These monks became during the Edo period spies for the shogun. At the end of the 19th century, the sect was banished, and the shakuhachi flourished among the population. The pieces you hear on this CD comes from 3 different schools of shakuhachi: dokyoku from the late shakuhachi master Katsuya Yokoyama, a piece by the late shakuhachi master Goro Yamaguchi, a piece by the last Jin Nyodo. It as well includes an original piece by Bruno Deschenes and an arrangement for 2 shakuhachi of a well-known solo piece: Tsuru no sugomori.
