ZINO is a world music band formed in Japan in the summer of 2006.
It's a trio adding sometimes a female voice and a tambura, which is a drone 4 strings Indian classical instrument.
The musicians are: Carlos Guerra (bansuri - the Indian classical bamboo flute) / Junji 'Scansoul' Shishino (guitar)/ Takuya Abe (drums & percussions) & Tokuko Nakamura (voice & tambura).
ZINO music is created by combining the musical ideas of Indian Ragas and the western harmony. The result is a kind of ambient acoustic & improvised groove music, leading to a relaxing and mystical atmosphere to communicate with the listeners.
We did the live recording at a house in the forests, in front of Mt Fuji in Japan. We were very happy to be there, being inspired by the Holy Mountain.
Later we chose the good tracks only, with no post-digital adding.
Thanks for listening.
Want to use these tracks in a commercial project/video?
There is a stillness before some rains that
comes to us . .. quietly like this music . ..
the tender guitar, chimes and flute . .
like graceful spirits . . . take the visitor on
a scenic tour of water color vistas . . .
the birds sing and the trees rustle . . . but the
music overwhelms us with its grace and delicate
flowering . ..
A train ride over the mountain . . .
the moon like a big golden eye
watches our ramblings . ..
and we sit mesmerized by
the liquid light as it drips from our features
and the music is the fuel
that moves the train . . . under the amber moon. . .
we are silent . .. in awe of this musical magic . .
Quiet . ..
a sweet voice in the morning . ..
guided by a whispering flute and a pattering of percussion
like a feather stroked over singing strings . .
a guitar is strummed dreamily . .
OH I wish there were more music like this on Jamendo . ..
It gave me so much peace . .. so much pleasure . . just a moment . ..
just a moment more, please.
