About the composer Rando Fukuda and his music
福田蘭童, 1905–1976

ERATA for actually CD booklet-We apologize for the mistake!!!!!
One typo in Japanese: Fukuda Rando Kanji should be:福田蘭童
Ran was misspelled - it was found out only after printing was done...

Rando Fukuda is the son of the noted Japanese painter Shigeru Aoki. Early on, he moved to Tokyo to study the Shakuhachi and the piano. He quickly became a prolific composer (theme songs for radio and TV programs, including the hit song: Fuefuki Doji). Fukuda was part of the modern Shakuhachi movement along with the famous Koto composer Michio Miyagi. Bringing romanticism and modernism to the shakuhachi music of the time. My teacher Katsuya Yokoyama felt a great connection to Fukuda Rando’s music (with whom he studied) and made sure that modern generations would not forget this great composer’s soulful music of the Meiji and Showa era. This recording is in memory to one the greatest Shakuhachi Masters of our times: Katsuya Yokoyama.

Marco Lienhard has performed and taught internationally for the last 30 years and has performed over 5000 concerts. He mastered the Shakuhachi (under Master Katsuya Yokoyama and Teruo Furuya), the Taiko, the Noh Flute and the Fue in Japan while touring for 18 years with Japan’s legendary Ondekoza. He is the founder and director of the New York based Taikoza and East Winds Ensemble. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Madison Square Garden, and many other venues around the world. Marco Lienhard is featured in many soundtracks and recorded for the award winning Nintendo Wii games: Red Steel 1 and 2. Marco Lienhard recorded several critically acclaimed CDs and has produced CDs for Taikoza and the East Winds Ensemble (award nominated Taikoza: Beginnings and Marco Lienhard Shakuhachi, etc.), also available for purchase.

Charles Wei-Ting Tang
Born in Kaohsiung in Taiwan, Charles Tang began playing the piano when he was five. The Republic of China Ministry of Education recognized him as a "Gifted Child in the Performing Arts." He moved to New York to continue his study of the piano and mastered the piano under Kathrine Parker and Martin Canin at the Juilliard School. He won the Gerald Tracy Competition and the McDonald Prize. Mr. Tang has been the artistic director, composer and performer of the Drum Spirit of China since 1997. He studied the koto in New York with Masayo Ishigure and he has performed on koto and piano with the East Winds Ensemble.

The East Winds Ensemble transports you in a world of beauty and soothing sounds with the Koto (String Instrument) and the Shakuhachi (bamboo flute).

Hogaku Journal, Tokyo Japan:
“ An amazing Shakuhachi player Marco Lienhard has come out with a new CD, truly a very gifted and wonderful sense of musicality. Not since “ National Treasure” Yamaguchi Goro’s rendition of Kinko Honkyoku music have I felt the need to listen to more of his music. His rendition of Honkyoku form the Watazumi style is incredible and everyone studying the style should listen to it. His powerful and heartfelt rendition of Amazing grace reminded me of such gospel singers as Mahalia Jackson. ”
