Daniel Nyochaku Soergel (The Kennedy Center)

Daniel Nyochaku Soergel

Daniel Nyohaku Soergel plays the Shakuhachi, the traditional bamboo flute of Japan. He completed study of the standard Kinko-Ru repertoire under the mentorship of Ronnie Nyogetsu Seldin and Yoshio Kurahashi and performs regularly in the New York City metropolitan area. In 1998, after ten years of study of traditional Honkyoko (original music written for the flute), and Sankyoku (chamber music scored for Shamisen, Koto and Shakuhachi), he was awarded the titel of Jun-Shi Han (master) of Kinko-Ryu from the Ki-Sui-An Dojo, the largest and most established outside of Japan. The performance name of Nohaku was chosen by his teachers to commemorate the receipt of the Natori (teaching certification). Nyohaku means ôlike the essence of whitenessö and reflects the spiritual nature of shakuhachi performance.
