Rising – By the Yoshida Brothers

This is an unsual blend of traditional Asian music and modern. It’s been a while since I have featured this group, and I love the sound of the stringed instrument they play, called the Shamisen. I think it is Japanese and it seems to only have two strings. It reminds me a little of the banjo. These guys really know how to play, and they have hands like lightning! Have a great weekend!

Blessings to everyone, and peace!

Asian Strings

These guys really know how to play the stringed instrument, called the shamisen. It reminds me somewhat of the banjo in the US, but it is smaller. It appears to have only two strings, so the sounds it makes are amazing. This is also an ancient instrument but the style they  play here seems to be a blend of traditional and modern. They play better than many rock stars I have seen! Go Yoshida Brothers!

Have a great weekend!

Blessings to everyone and PEACE!
