Shakuhachi Offering for NYPD Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos

Hello All, I’d like to give a shout out to Shawn Edwards who won the 2.4 EARTH Model flute played in my Offering video to the fallen NYPD officers. We brought in money to help pay for the officers’ mortgages through tunnels2towers.org. I hope to do more of this in 2015. The great thing about the shakuhachi provides me aside from music, spirituality and health is community. I have some amazing friends out there!

May you all experience a rich and healthy 2015!
A deep bow, Perry

Hi, I’m Perry Yung. 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 my path by 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!
