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.

I’m enjoying the videos! :smiley: I would not have discovered Takatora Kawamoto (川本高虎—the musician in the “Tengu” video above) without this thread.

#36

I think that’s the band with Chie Hanawa, but not completely sure about it


#37

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! :notes: :fire:

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.
