Event Image Shakuhachi Performance
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

The Center for Asian Studies is pleased to welcome to Willamette University renowned Shakuhachi player, James Nyoraku Schlefer. The Shakuhachi is an end-blown bamboo flute that has been played in Japan for over 1200 years, captivating the minds and hearts of listeners. Remarkably simple in design, it takes years to master. The sound is at once sensual and spiritual, capable of great emotional depth. It is the only instrument associated with the practice of Zen Buddhism, and was performed during religious rituals by priests of the Fuke sect. During the Edo Period (1600-1868), Shakuhachi-playing monks known as Komusô (“Priest of Nothingness”) wandered throughout Japan playing the Shakuhachi in exchange for food or alms. The aim was to strike a perfect sound that would enlighten the world.
