The first known recording for Piano and Japanese Bamboo Flute (Shakuhachi), ZEN WATRFALL remains a meditation music classic that was recorded by Paul Lloyd Warner and Eliot Joshu in 1977. In Japanese culture, there is a sacred and honored tradition for the Shakuhachi. The revered makers of these traditional instruments cure hand-picked bamboo for several years until they are ripe and ready to fashion into a five hole flute.The piano played in this recording is a handmade GROTRIAN piano from Germany. The combination of an exquisite European Grand Piano and haunting Shakuhachi instruments make ZEN WATERFALL one of the most beautiful meditation albums of our time.
