Playing the Japanese bamboo flute (shakuhachi) is a quintessential Zen art, blending moment by moment awareness with deep relaxation. The instrument has ancient origins in China, and arrived with Zen Buddhism to Japan during the Tang Dynasty. The shakuhachi master Daniel Nyohaku Soergel will capture the spirit of emptiness and deliver a truly unique sound and experience in the Wang Center’s Zen Rock Garden. Soergel’s performance name, “Nyohaku” (the essence of purity), was given to him by his teachers to reflect the spiritual nature of his performance.
