yoshida brothers[Interview with Yoshida Brothers]

What made you decide to pursue music instead of a more traditional career path?
Ryoichiro: I chose to pursue my career as Shamisen player at 17. At that time, I had to choose either going to the college or getting a job. Our group name “Yoshida Brothers” had spread out in Hokkaido area when I was in high school, so I wanted to try our skills in Tokyo!
Kenichi: At the time when we made our debut, Shamisen was considered as an “Old” instrument, and people in Japan didn’t have a positive impression much. So, I wanted to show people the greatness of Shamisen that I had been playing since I was five.

What is a typical day like for you when you’re home in Japan?
Ryochiro: It depends, but I practice Shamisen for 2-3 hours a day everyday.
Kenichi: When I have a free time at home, I usually practice Shamisen or writing songs, and sometimes watch TV or movies. I also like playing games. I try to relax at home when I can, since I often travel around for concerts.

What is your ultimate dream?
Ryoichiro: I would like to show the beauty of this instrument to Japanese people, and to the world!!
Kenichi: I would like to be an intellectual entertainer, not just being a musician.

What is your biggest fear?
Ryoichiro: I concerned about the music schools that teach Japanese traditional instruments. I am worried that someday traditional instruments will vanish if we haven’t change the way to teach. We must teach students the essence of the instruments and the joy of playing.
Kenichi: Rapid climate change happening on the Earth. Shamisen needs a lot of natural materials to be made.

What is your favorite food?
Ryoichiro: I like typical Japanese foods like broiled fish or Sushi.
Kenichi: All Japanese foods.

If you reach the age of 80, looking back at your life, what would you want to be able to say to yourself?
Ryoichiro: Good job!
Kenichi: I would like to ask myself if I would have tried my best for everything.
