Michiko Akao – 般若波羅蜜多 (Prajna Paramita)
Taken from Michiko Akao – Yokobue.
Released on Toshiba Records, 1983, Japan.
This song is taken from an amazing album on which Yokobue (traditional Japanese flute) player Michiko Akao blends traditional Japanese music with electronic elements in the most psychedelic way. The first track, Prajna Paramita, might be the craziest song – with its major twist at the middle – but the rest of the album is filled with ambient gems.
Beautiful album for meditative sessions.
