Some Deep Purple on the shamisen
Ran across this a while back and got a real kick out of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbObLy5MjWU
Tap seems like a dying art. It’s a shame. I miss the heydays of Gregory Hines and his compatriots.
The shamisen player takes the lead…
Hey,this is a pretty good video. Thanks for sharing!!
I hope you all enjoy these videos!
I’m enjoying the videos! I would not have discovered Takatora Kawamoto (川本高虎—the musician in the “Tengu” video above) without this thread.
Hey MMIX, these videos you are posting are really great! keep the videos coming!
Here is a video by the seshame street bros.
I think that’s the band with Chie Hanawa, but not completely sure about it
Here is a video by Hiromitsu Agatsuma, mixing the Shamisen with some modern sounds in future bass style
SHINTA & Masahiro (Nitta)
The video quality is so-so, but there’s no problem with the shamisen and wadaiko sound!
They just pulled Agatsuma’s latest album (which includes the song above) off of Apple Music and Spotify. Now I’m sad. It’s got some good stuff on it. I hope that it’s just some licensing issue and they bring it back.
I wonder what Masahiro nitta is up to these days.
