“I am extremely grateful that my dream of performing in Istanbul finally came true. It was a once in a lifetime experience and in addition to my many experiences; I met a host of great people from Istanbul and the neighboring countries. As a remembrance of my amazing music caravan and as a tribute to those I encountered along the way, I recorded this musical experience and performance as a CD. It is my gift to everyone, in Istanbul and around the world, to experience and enjoy.”

Yoshida Brothers 15th Anniversary Special vol. 6: Prism

To celebrate their 15th Anniversary, we offer a special promotion on each album every 15 days.

Until August 15th, we will be featuring 2009 released album “Prism”YB_15thbanner_vol.6

On Prism, Yoshida Brothers have collaborated with some notable talents, such as Southern California singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop, who wrote the Celtic-tinged “One Long River” and David Baerwald, the singer-songwriter who provided the whimsical track “Mr. Nagano’s Foolish Proposal”. And “Summer Day” marks a collaboration with keyboardist and producer Mitchell Froom (writer of the Yoshida Brothers’ “Hit Song”) with additional songwriting contributions from drummer Matt Chamberlain (Tori Amos, Edie Brickell) and Phantom Planet vocalist Alex Greenwald.

This album stand-outs fit comfortably alongside more traditional examples of Japanese folk like “Hu Jin” and “Aiya,” plus the Brothers’ inspired cover of “The National Anthem” from Radiohead’s Kid A. The album’s final track, “End of the World,” was featured on the soundtrack to the Mark Wahlberg/Joaquin Phoenix film, We Own the Night, further enhancing the Yoshida Brothers’ profile in America.

Yoshida Brothers 15th Anniversary Special vol. 5: Hishou

To celebrate their 15th Anniversary, we offer a special promotion on each album every 15 days.

We are featuring their 2007 released (US) album “Hishou” until July 31st.

YB_15thbanner_vol.5

This album is just pure shamisen virtuosity. They didn’t use any other instruments like Guitars or Taiko Drum.
Yoshida Brothers covered some of their original songs, traditional Japanese songs, and played new songs on this album.

HISHOU (“flying” or “souring” in Japanese) continues the exploration of marrying new phrasings to traditional sounds. The result is at once sentimental and respectful of the past, while also forging a sonic bridge to the future. Having explored rock and world music themes in previous releases, this album marks a return to basics for the brothers, highlighting their commitment to and reverence for the historic art of Tsugaru-Shamisen.
