about

Ikebana is the art of Japanese flower arrangement.

Origins

The Japanese art of flower arrangement can be traced back to the sixth century when Buddhism was introduced to Japan. The offering of flowers on the altar in honor of Buddha was part of worship. Ikebana evolved from the Buddhist ritual of offering flowers to the spirits of the dead. The first classical styles of Ikebana started in the middle of the fifteenth century; the first students and teachers of Ikebana were Buddhist priests and members. As time passed, other schools emerged, styles changed, and Ikebana became a custom among the Japanese society. (wikipedia)

Ananda’s Musical Interpretation

After the earthquakes and tsunami hit Japan I began composing dance songs titled with the names of Japanese flowers. This is done as an offering to those who have passed in these disasters and to show love for this beautiful country.
