Album Notes
The fifth album by Rodrigo Rodriguez called "Traditional and Modern Pieces-Shakuhachi-".It's an album that takes the title because its content is part traditional and modern for the Japanese instrument Shakuhachi.

The artist's new work, try to break the traditional purist context, recording on one cd modern and traditional pieces from the repertoire Honkyoku Kinko Ryu school formed in 18th century by the monk Kinko Kurosawa, or Nezasa Ha school created in more ancient period.

The Shakuhachi flute from the times of his appearance till now a days, suffer many changes and development in his way of performance and musical discipline.

Rodrigo Rodriguez is a devote student from the Mu-Ryu Shakuhachi Tokyo School, founded in the 70s by the renowned master of Japan's leading players of shakuhachi Miyata Kohachiro.

Mu-Ryu means "Not Belong", "not to follow" any School or "Beyond Tozan" and "Kinko Tradition", the two Shakuhachi schools more popular in Japan.

Eleven pieces wich three of them are Tradional, "Shika no tone" one of the most famouse pieces for Shakuhachi duet, where two Shakuhachi players performs imitating the sound of a deer in the autumn forest, or Sagariha wich means "Falling Leaves" from the Nezasa Ha sect repertoire, and Honshirabe.

Eight modern pieces from the Mu-Ryu musical perspective, not following to a traditional pattern, using full complex traditional techniques in the contemporary shakuhachi music.
