about

Available on Vinyl, Cassette, CD & Digital
Digitally Remastered by Hideyuki Waki (ConcentNY)

Fumio Miyashita:
Musician, music therapist and founder of Healing Music in Japan.
Fumio Miyashita began his musical career in 1966. In 1969, he was an
original member of the rock musical, 'Hair', in Tokyo. He formed the
progressive rock groups Far Out and Far East Family Band, releasing
ground-breaking albums and touring internationally. Always interested
in oriental philosophy since studying karate at a young age (he became a black belt in high school), he became interested in oriental medicine after an injury on stage that only healed after undergoing acupuncture. In 1977, he immigrated to the United States, where he continued to study oriental medicine, philosophy, the Chinese Five Elements and also began, in earnest, to research music therapy.
In 1981, he decided to return to Japan, moved to Shinshu Iizuna
Highlands and established Biwa Studio. One reason for choosing Iizuna Highlands was because it's altitude is 1,250 meters and during his studies he learned that this is a very positive and healthy altitude for the human body to reside in. There he created numerous works, including music CD's and image videos. His passion was for creating music that was helpful to people and his recurring theme in his works was relaxation and healing for the mind and body. He named his music 'Healing Music' and he established his own unique style of music therapy. His most important work, the long seller 'Meditation', has sold over 600,000 CD's. The long sellers, 'Tanjo' and 'Yasuragi', have sold over 300,000 copies. He had the privilege to perform specially for such places as Ise Shrine, Kashiwara Shrine, Tenkawa Shrine, Kasuga Shrine, Asukaimasu Shrine, and Zenkoji Temple. Multi-talented, he helped many sports players with mental training, he performed as a musician and held seminars as a therapist. His 'Sleeping Concerts' and 'Music for Prenatal Care' was widely talked about. He passed away in 2003, but in his lifetime he recorded and released more than 130 works.
