Ibuki (1999)

Yoshida Brothers’ major debut album “Ibuki” sold over 100,000 copies within an year.
This was an incredible record as Tsugaru-shamisen or other traditional Japanese recordings (Those albums are rarely sold more than a thousand copies in Japan.)

In a traditional way,  you straighten up your back and face front when you play Shamisen. However, Yoshida Brothers move like guitar players when they play Shamisen.
Their unique Rock / Traditional style fascinated people who weren’t even familiar with Traditional style music.

Their Unique Style

This album features mostly traditional tsugaru-shamisen songs, though hints of the Brothers’ signature style are starting to emerge.

From the very beginning, it was clear that the group was bringing this ancient three-stringed instrument into modern times, interpreting its sound for a contemporary audience.
Ibuki deservedly turned the Yoshida Brothers into rock stars in their native land, another rarity for tsugaru-shamisen instrumentalists. Take a listen to where the journey began.
