Tsugaru Shamisen Madness


#1

For those not familiar with the term, a Tsugaru Shamisen is a sort of Japanese Lute.

This guy is amazing.

(watch the bottom couple of links first if you’re not familiar with the bed intruder song)

And finally: the funny.

I looked up his stuff, and I think he’s awesome! Even does some classical, as well as stuff he’s written himself.

Not exactly a shamisen, but this guy rocks out on the dombra.
