Shakuhachi in Ken Burn's The War part I

Does anyone know who was playing/what recording used in the Japanese American segment of Ken Burn's The War part I Sunday night?

Also, there was a great picture of a Japanese American girl singing into an old mic in front of an American flag with her Japanese father sitting on her right, playing a lovely old, bound, fairly thick shakuhachi with an urushi-blackened utaguchi and bottom end of the root. Hoping this picture is in the public domain (maybe to be found in the companion book to the series).

Researched this today and found that it is part of the National Archives and is unrestricted.

I'm going to see if I can hunt down a better copy directly through the archives.

I think this is  Kohachiro Miyata playing Honshirabe. You can hear this on the CD "Japan - Shakuhachi - The Japanee Flute". It's the CD with the monk raking the gravel garden......

I have met that monk and played shakuhachi for him.

What did he say when he heard your music?  What temple is his association?

He is the abbot of Daitokuj now. I met him before I started playing shakuhachi. Then when I started with shakuhachi and got that CD I recognized his face. I returned and blew shakuhachi in the temple. He remembered me from the previous visit and said, "You learned all that since I saw you last!?!?!?" He liked it.

That particular photo must be in a commercial photo library because I recently saw it used as a big poster for makeup at Sak's Fith Avenue in NYC.

Ciao,
