In 1994, Leonard Cohen left the show business and civilization to hide in the Zen monastery at Mount Baldy, California. He became a Zen monk, receiving the Japanese name Jikan. After spending 5 years in a monastery, he abandoned it for a woman.
Body and Mystic – two worlds of Cohen …
Full of new, explorative musical arrangements and unobvious humor of a Canadian bard.
