Yoshida Brothers

Wildly popular in their native Japan, the Yoshida Brothers are virtuosos of the Tsugaru shamisen, a traditional three-string instrument not unlike the banjo, and they've taken the instrument outside the realms of Japanese folk, incorporating elements of pop, smooth jazz, rock and new age styles into their music. The Yoshida Brothers perform with the strength and swagger of rock guitarists, while respecting the shamisen and its rich heritage. The Yoshida Brothers hail from the city of Noboribetsu in Hokkaido prefecture; Ryoichiro Yoshida was born in 1977, and Kenichi Yoshida in 1979. The siblings each took up the shamisen when they were five, and in 1990 they began advanced instruction under master musician Takashi Sasaki. After an impressive showing at several shamisen competitions, the Yoshida Brothers released their first major label album in Japan in 1999; it was a surprise success, selling over 100,000 copies, and became the first of several top-selling releases for the duo. While the Yoshida Brothers initially performed in a traditional folk style, they soon began embracing a more eclectic sound and their live performances became increasingly elaborate. In 2003, after several more high-charting albums and successful concert tours at home, the Yoshida Brothers made their American debut, releasing a self-titled album through Domo Records and playing a handful of U.S. dates. More international touring followed, and the duo's 2006 album III was recorded in Los Angeles, with a tour of Europe, the United States and Hong Kong following. In 2007, the Yoshida Brothers' music reached more American ears than ever before when one of their songs was used in a television spot for the Nintendo Wii video game system. ~ Mark Deming

It's not a bad song, inside the sun remix is catchy. And I don't usually listen to Japanese music but this is really good.

All I envision is blurry fingers ripping up buildings with strings made of the souls of the damned... Until there is nothing left but a strangely dressed man in a woman's mask, beckining to something in the distance. It is the renewal of souls that embodies creation as a force of ultimate change.

To all the Naruto fans who love this group, when they perform with a taiko drummer, that drummer is always the drummer from the Naruto series.

I've never heard of a Tsugaru shamisen: I'm amazed that they can pick so many sounds out of just 3 strings! That's a LOT of fretting!

I thought this was an Indian sitar, which has 17-20 strings. I love the exotic world sound!

Nice to see traditions kept and the young generation embracing the old in music ...........t h e n re interpret it to the modern style they create. It's a good evolution of the music. Seven Sisters are the same type of young ones doing the same. Good to listen to.
