    Christopher Yohmei Blasdel began the shakuhachi and studies of Japanese music in 1972 with Goro Yamaguchi.

Performing in Japan and around the world, Blasdel is one of the foremost world performers and educators in shakuhachi and Japanese music. His playing maintains a balance between traditional shakuhachi music, modern compositions and cross-genre work with musicians, dancers, poets and visual artists.
