Perry Yung Shakuhachi Image“I highly recommend the work of Perry Yung to my students and friends. I am impressed about the knowledge and skill. It’s evident we are living in a very globalized world cultures, and you can find the best Shakuhachi making service outside from Japan.
Thank you Perry”
- Rodrigo Rodriguez
I learn the most from musicians who are dedicated to the music, both new and traditional, at the highest level. What you need from your instrument pushes me to understand what the shakuhachi must do now, and in the future. A deep bow my friend. - Perry

Hi, I’m Perry Yung. Welcome! I first discovered the shakuhachi flute while performing in New York City as an actor in Ellen Stewart’s Oedipus the King. Night after night, the subtle sound grew to become all encompassing. Soon, I started making the flute as it was impossible to buy a shakuhachi in the pre-internet days of 1994. Time passed and eight years later got a grant to live in Japan to study traditionally with some of the best makers and players in the world. The shakuhachi changed my life in ways that words can not describe. My goal is to help you with a flute that can open that door as it is a beautiful world on the other side. Come on in!
