Bonsaï: Term which also refers to music and dance grown in shallow containers following the precise sense of pruning and training; resulting in artful miniature replica of a full-grown tree. In the broad sense, bonsai refers to miniaturized trees adhering to free-jazz tradition and principles. The purposes of bonsaï are primarily contemplation for the viewer, and the pleasant exercise of effort and ingenuity for the grower. In contrast to other music genres and dance cultivation practices, bonsaï is intended for production of neither food nor medicine.
