‘Do you have a favorite sound?’
‘The most beautiful sound is the sound is the sound of Ma, the sound of silence’
This is part of a conversation between the little boy Yoshio and the musician.
The Sound of Silence is the delightful book that describes Yoshio’s journey through the hustle and bustle of Tokyo where he lives, to find the most beautiful sound of all.
Illustrated with lovely images and colour, Yoshis journey takes him through the city, his school, the bullet trains and traffic in perhaps one of the busiest cities in the world. But it was the encounter with the Koto player Sensei, that made him discover the best sound – the sound of silence.
