Superstars in their native Japan, the Yoshida Brothers - Ryoichiro and Kenichi - are young masters of the Japanese Shamisen. In their fast rise to prominence they have effected nothing short of a cultural revolution, reinventing the traditional three-stringed instrument with the fiery passion of guitar rock'n'roll. Their blinding technique and East-meets-West musical style blends the centuries-old tradition of Japanese Shamisen with modern melodies and rhythms, as evidenced on their latest album, III. An international musical phenomenon, the Yoshida Brothers are poised to fuel Japanese Shamisen for a new generation of fans across the globe. Yoshi's welcomes the duo back for an encore performance after two sold out shows last year.
