Newest work  "Winds of KOKU"

Shakuhachi Solo Pieces “Winds of Koku”
(2015 INSPIRATUM)
Recorded at "Cryogene-Prod" Bordreaux, France

The work  acclaimed by world celebrities such as internationally influential curator, Axel Verdvoodt and globally recognized guitarist, John Mc Laughlin and one of the leading Russian musician Boris Grebenshchikov.

"For me, shakuhachi is an instru- ment capable of creating sounds that are full of endless space. With its origins tied to Japanese Zen monks, this is an instrument that I feel is completely timeless and belongs to the civilization and history of the entire world.This music gives space in the mind to its listeners."

"– THE LIQUID NOTES FLOW OUT OF BAMBOO – WHO KNOWS FROM WHENCE THEY COME… – THE ANCIENT HEART SOARS ABOVE… – THE NOTES ARE THE WIND – THAT CAPTURES ME"
John Mc Laughlin

"We keep walking through chaos With great peace in our souls. Is this not what the flute is singing about? The first time I heard Koichi Yoshida playing was in the morning, before the beginning of the festival "path to oneself 2013". I was completely mesmerized. Thank you for this album!"
