Welcome to the official web site of the composer and shakuhachi player Rodrigo Rodriguez.
"The Road of Hasekura Tsunenaga (CD 2013): The emphasis is very much on the shakuhachi flute, sometimes in duo, only bolstered by harp in a couple of the more "Spanish" pieces. It is thus a depiction of this historical interaction from the Japanese perspective, including classical Honkyoku repertory, and indeed, Rodríguez is formally trained in shakuhachi of the Mu-Ryû school. Although the shakuhachi can be very austere, this is a fascinating album depicting a fascinating historical experience." — Todd Michel McComb (Medieval.org)
