Black Earth Shakuhachi School 尺八
the One Sound – 21st century Watazumido
A bold new sect within an esoteric woodwind tradition from ancient Japanese Zen Buddhism, Black Earth Shakuhachi School is an East-West music school for wide and low, pure 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 Eric Dolphy — and in the deep shadow of Son House.
