Watch in awe as these two “kyÅdai” (brothers in japanese), kimono&hakama-clad but hair-died, masterfully fuse the traditional shamisen with modern music. The Yoshida Brothers are celebrities in Japan and they’ve also begun to be promoted in US and the rest of the world as well. So much that some even compare their shamisen-skills to Jimi Hendrix’s.
Enjoy a simple tranquille ballad and a ravishing waterfall-like song:
