Shakuhachi Demonstration Videos

I get a lot of inquiries asking about the differences between the different styles of shakuhachi -Jinashi, Jiari, Hocchiku and wood mostly. Here is a collection of videos I posted on youtube over the years to compare and contrast the styles.


A video demonstration can do much more than writing about it. However, hearing the shakuhachi over the internet does not do it justice. Much of the subtle tone colors are lost in the sound compression. Obviously, the best way to hear a shakuhachi is to sit in a room with a live player. I’ll probably update the videos over the next few days.

Enjoy, Perry
