About Yoshida Brothers  
Who are Yoshida Brothers?


Lately, Tsugaru shamisen has become a boom, as traditional arts that Japan can boast to the world. Yoshida Brothers, who could be said as the firebrand of this movement, are the same as any other youngster, having a clear-cut face, and dyeing their hair brown. Their appearance together with an archaistic costume, Haori Hakama, has been talked about much, but their popularity is more than that. Their play style being unimaginable in the conventional shamisen player, there was a time that elder brother Ryoichiro, seriously worried about this. Playing, shaking the body intensely, having a fresh sensibility, collaborating with modern instruments and folk song instruments, and of course having prominent performance skill. Having the skill to play ad-lib, and the originality of trying to take in various folk song instruments, is tradition and innovation. This is the true reason that Yoshida Brothers are empathized and supported by every age generation. The intense juvenescent Tsugaru shamisen sound and spirit that they create, not only attracts the conventional Tsugaru shamiesn fans, but also attracts the people who love music, such as jazz, rock, fusion, and techno fans, and continues to move our hearts.

About Tsugaru Shamisen
"TSUGARU SHAMISEN ? History"


The shamisen is an instrument that's been around for a long time in Japan. It's about 1 meter (3 feet) long and has three strings that are played using a large pick called a bachi. The tsugaru shamisen is a kind of shamisen whose unique style of play gives performers room to improvise. A lot of people say it's similar to jazz in that way.
The shamisen first came to Japan from China by way of Okinawa (which was then called the Ryukyu Kingdom). People in Japan began developing their own way of playing it, such as the use of the bachi. In the Edo period (1603-1868), it was used as background music for kabuki theater. Its popularity soared as a result, and it evolved into one of the most important instruments in Japan's classical music.
The shamisen is basically made up of the body and neck. There are three main types, differentiated by the thickness of the neck. The thickest, or futozao, produces a booming, powerful sound, while the thinnest, hosozao, has a very gentle and delicate sound. The type used for tsugaru shamisen is even bigger than the futozao, and the strings are a little fatter as well. The bachi is used not just to pluck the strings; it is sometimes used to strike them with force. The sound, therefore, is very loud--almost too loud if you're listening up close.
The tsugaru shamisen, as the name suggests, developed in the Tsugaru district--the western half of Aomori Prefecture on the northern tip of Honshu, Japan's main island. Tsugaru is usually covered in snow from the end of November to early April, and is one of the snowiest regions in the country.
There's a tradition in Tsugaru for wandering artists to perform in front of people's houses--singing folk songs and playing the shamisen--for some small change or food.
This is thought to be how the tsugaru shamisen style came into being.
Until around the middle of the nineteenth century, tsugaru shamisen was used simply to provide background music to folk singers. But from the beginning of the Meiji era (1868-1912), it came to be appreciated on its own, and people began performing it as a solo instrument or in an ensemble. Virtuosos appeared who came up with new techniques and elevated the playing style to an art form. The tsugaru shamisen has a bluesy tone, and its powerful sound is like the howling of one's soul. This may be a natural expression of the strength people acquired in learning to survive the harsh climate of the Tsugaru region. By the 1960s, tsugaru shamisen came to be recognized around the world as a uniquely Japanese style of music. And from around 1970 many players began holding concerts overseas, and tsugaru shamisen gained a global following. It's attracting not only a lot of young people who are enthusiastic about playing but also a much broader audience who enjoy just listening to it.
