Alcvin was born in Japan to Filipino parents, attended school in the United States, and now lives in the rainforests of BC, Canada. He is Canada’s leading teacher of the shakuhachi who practices the traditional ways but enjoys exploring sonic worlds of other traditions and beyond. In November of 2008, Alcvin received an honourary Dai Shihan license along with a new name, “Ryuzen” (Dragon Meditation) from another one of Japan’s most virtuosic players and teachers, Yoshinobu Taniguchi.
