An Invitation To Study Classical Shakuhachi

The Society for the Study of Classical Shakuhachi; "Koten-shakuhachi-kenkyū-kai" was founded by Sakurai Muteki (1893-1961) who received the name of the Society from Tanikita Muchiku with the instruction to found a Myōan-shakuhachi group in Osaka. After Sakurai-sensei's death Monden Tekikū became the second leader of the group. All present members are his students. Monden Tekikū has recently retired and the group is now headed by Maeta Tekifū the oldest of Monden-sensei's students and his successor. The main mission of the group it is to keep Sakurai Muteki's and Monden Tekikū's way of playing and their spirit alive. The society meets every 2nd Saturday of the month in Osaka, Japan to play and study old songs of the Komuso in a meditational inner approach.


Please contact Oliver Aumann at oliveraumann(at)gmail(dot)com for directions and dates of the shakuhachi group meeting if you would like to join the practice of suizen.


 Good fun, food and humor often follows at the local Izakaya.

Making time for wonderful sound and spirit!
