We had our Monthly gathering of the Phoenix AZ Shakuhachi Friends this Saturday, December 3rd at the Scottsdale Neighborhood Arts Place. http://phoenixazshakuhachi.com/

There was just a couple of us there this month but we still had a wonderful time. We started working on a new group piece called Hamachidori which translates into English as Song of the Seashore Bird (Plover). A simple song but fun for all levels.

Hamachidori
(Beach Plovers)
Year: 1919
This piece was composed for Shakuhachi by Hirota Rutaro

The words:
On the beach beneath a blue moon night,
birds cry out, searching for their parents.
They emerge from the land of waves.
Their wet wings the color silver.

Such grief from these birds, crying in the dark.
Crossing the sea, seeking their parents.
They disappear into the land of night.
Young beach plovers with silver wings.


We worked though some planning for next Saturday's concert by David Wheeler (Kansuke II).

Internationally recognized shakuhachi master and scholar David Wheeler (Kansuke II) will be presenting a concert of solo pieces, introducing and performing works of secular and spiritual music spanning 400 years from the classics of the 18th and 19th centuries to modern works of the 20th and 21st centuries.
