Yoshida Brothers – Frontier 2003

Yoshida Brothers – Frontier 2003


Includes track(s) arranged by Akira Inoue. Contains 10 tracks including classic songs written by Rentaro Taki (“Koujou no Tsuki”), and more.
They are a pair of brothers and performers of the traditional Japanese music style of Tsugaru-jamisen which originated in northern Japan. They debuted in 1999 in Japan as a duo playing the shamisen. Their first album sold over 100,000 copies and made them minor celebrities in Japan, a fact that surprised the Yoshida Brothers themselves. They have since attracted an international audience.

Their music has been a fusion of the rapid and percussive Tsugaru-jamisen style along with Western and other regional musical influences. In addition to performing songs that are only on the shamisen, they also use modern instruments such as drums and synthesizers
Since then, the Yoshida Brothers have released three more hit albums in Japan: 2000?s Move, 2002?s Soulful, and 2003´s **Frontier**, with total sales approaching 300,000. Over the extraordinary course of their ascendant career, they have incorporated textures and sounds from various and sundry global music idioms into their unique artistry, including Peruvian folk, Spanish flamenco, Chinese flute, and rock ?n roll, all within the context of innovative yet authentic Tsugaru-shamisen.
