One of our popular artists, Yoshida Brothers.
I bet some of you guys already know them since we’ve talked about Yoshida Brothers several times on this blog.

Therefore, you might be familiar with the instruments that they always play.
That instrument is called “Shamisen“.

What is “Shamisen“??
The shamisen is a three-stringed, Japanese traditional musical instrument played with a big pick called a bachi.

There are many ways to use Shamisen. Traditional way is for Kabuki which is an old-style Japanese theater arts. Also, it could be played for solo performance or for singing and dancing.
