Some of the greatest Shamisening you will ever see.

Everyone who knows of the shamisen, knows the Yoshida Brothers. They are almost pop stars, and deserve every bit the recognition they are getting.

Still though, their shamisening has a heavy focus on accompanying instruments, when the shamisen deserves to shine on its own. Not only that, but the Yoshida Brothers tend to perform more pop renditions of traditional songs rather than adhere to the more traditional sound.

I thought it would be nice to get some of more traditional shamisen in my life so I took to the Youtubes to find a couple songs worth sharing. Take a moment and enjoy.
