Album Notes

This is a Traditional shakuhachi flute album sponsored by Japan Foundation, Embassy of Japan in Spain, Ayuntamiento Coria del Río, Association Casa Galicia Japon and SGAE. Dedicated to the Japanese ambassador and samurai Hasekura Rokuemon Tsunenaga (1571-1622).

In the years 1613 through 1620, Hasekura headed a diplomatic mission to the Vatican in Rome, traveling through New Spain (arriving in Acapulco and departing from Veracruz) and visiting various ports-of-call inEurope. This historic mission is called the Keichō Embassy (慶長使節), and follows the Tenshō embassy (天正使節) of 1582.A collection of pieces from the shakuhachi schools, Tozan Ryu, Nezasa Ha, Kinko Ryu and Mu-ryu were selected by Rodrigo for this memorial album and also thematic original compositions inspired in the mission of Hasekura Tsunenaga.

This musical project was approved and included in the Dual Year Spain - Japan 2013-2014 Japanese embassy in Spain.Also selected as one of the official gifts to Japan's Crown Prince Naruhito during his visit to Spain, as a sign of cultural and artistic exchange between the two countries.
