Black Earth Shakuhachi School 尺八

full-blooded musicianship

An East-West music school for raw, wide and low bamboo flutes (jinashi & Taimu shakuhachi), honkyoku (本曲 solo Zen Buddhist repertoire), blues and new music.  Also specializing in rare breathing techniques, in-house repertoire (over 75 compositions and arrangements) and the reactivation of the Zen, Nature and hidden elements of shakuhachi’s deep roots.  Established in 2019 by Cornelius Shinzen Boots (Shihan dokyoku, MM Jazz Studies) in the direct lineages of both Watazumi and John Coltrane — and in the deep shadow of Muddy Waters.

jinashi – honkyoku – blues – new music – Taimu – Zen – rare breathing methods

This revivification of Shinzen Shakuhachi just emerged in 2019: more detailed Philosophy, Practice and Repertoire coming soon.
Welcome to the grand archetype of woodwinds.
