Cornelius Boots and The Wood Prophets

Bigfoot Revelation: bass shakuhachi quartet album release concert

Cornelius Boots, bass shakuhachi (Taimu) & compositions
Wood Prophets: Kevin Chen, Karl Young, Hiromi Inaba, bass shakuhachi

The Wood Prophets are a natural shakuhachi quartet playing woodwind nature hymns and primeval chamber music. This concert will feature solo performances from the members (set one) and premieres of some of this unique group’s core repertoire (set two).

A recipient of a 2020 InterMusic SF musical grant program commissioning award for the creation of the five-part woodwind chamber saga Wood Prophecy, this concert celebrates the release of their second concept album, the four-part Bigfoot Revelation.

Playing low-pitched variants of the root-end bamboo shakuhachi flute, the group evolves this Japanese Zen Buddhist music tradition, drawing heavily and creatively upon sensibilities of nature communion and breath cultivation.
