Zen ambient music on the radio

Zen ambient is a subgenre of ambient music that incorporates elements of traditional Japanese music, such as the use of the koto and shakuhachi instruments, as well as Zen Buddhist philosophy. The music is often characterized by a slow tempo, repetitive patterns, and a focus on creating a meditative atmosphere.

One of the most popular artists in the zen ambient genre is Hiroki Okano, a Japanese composer who has released several albums of zen ambient music. His music often features the sound of the shakuhachi flute, which is known for its ability to induce a meditative state.

Another well-known artist in the genre is Deuter, a German musician who has been creating music for meditation and relaxation since the 1970s. His music often combines elements of new age and world music with the ambient sounds of nature.

Other notable artists in the zen ambient genre include Brian Eno, Steve Roach, and Klaus Wiese.
