Zen Hanami is a project of Ingo Ito (Camouflage/Rain On Bamboo). Influenced by musicians like Brian Eno or Harold Budd, this series of ambient music is specifically composed and produced for those listeners, who want to create for themselves an atmosphere of tranquillity - ideal for contemplation and meditation or just for relaxing from the daily rush.

The Japanese word 'Hanami' literally means 'flower viewing'. Since many centuries it has been the traditional custom of enjoying the beauty of flowers in nature, mainly during the cherry blossom season.

An ocean of blossoms, gently moving in the spring wind - a beautiful picture to accompany the music of Zen Hanami.

In Zen Hanami, each piece of music is sculptured by some distinctive musical loops playing in harmony. A pool of sound - repeated like an endless mantra. But with each loop having its individual length, it is a constantly changing soundscape - it seems the same, but it's always different.

Each album in the 'Volume' series is based on a specific theme. ‘Volume 4‘ dives into the sea to meet beautiful and mythical creatures of the oceans. Each track has a predefined duration of 15 minutes to accompany (for example) the listener's lessons of practicing Tai Chi, Yoga or Meditation.
