Adrian Freedman

Adrian is an astoundingly accomplished shakuhachi player and music maker whose sound you will already be familiar with if you know "Movement Medicine CD1" where his shakuhachi soars on the beautiful "Air" track and "All the Earth is Sacred" where his flute illuminates "Winds of Change". His collaboration with Lua in their new album "Phoenix Tree" is a beautiful work, dialoguing between the still silent spaces of their flute dialogues and both of their songs.

CD - Music on the Edge of Silence

Seven meditative pieces for solo shakuhachi - Japanese bamboo flute. Four Japanese pieces from the Zen Buddhist tradition, and three original compositions by Adrian Freedman.

"Starkly beautiful... stunning melodic purity"
Natasha Kuler-von-der-Luhe

“These traditional and modern compositions are a searing, spacious, zen meditation. Truly sound on the edge of silence. Some still music is soothing. This isn't. It's a focused call to attention”
Frazer Reid

"He understands the spiritual and aesthetic expression to an extent which even Japanese people find difficult.”
Yokoyama Katsuya (Japanese Shakuhachi Master)

Two Rivers
A beautiful new cd from Adrian Freedman on skakuhachi flute and Ravi on Kora
Ravi and Adrian share a musical vision of exquisitely crafted sound, giving space for the subtle characteristics of each instrument and seeking a balance between the free play of spontaneous improvisation and more carefully arranged musical passages.


Adrian Freedman is a master of the shakuhachi, bamboo Zen flute of Japan. His music is heartfelt and full of subtle dynamics which conjure an atmosphere of rarefied peace, with a deeply healing sense of spaciousness, pristine clarity and delicate beauty. The scope of his music is diverse, including songs was well as instrumental music, but an ineffable sense of the sacred is retained throughout.
