Shamisen Hero

Yoshida Kyōdai are Japanese musicians who are known internationally as the Yoshida Brothers and have been recording and performing since 1999. Ryōichirō Yoshida and Ken'ichi Yoshida are the ones rocking out on the shamisen, a traditional Japanese instrument dating back to the 16th century. You've probably heard their music in the background of Nintendo Wii commercials (a track called 'Kodo' from their 'Yoshida Brothers II' album).

The track 'Rising' is from their 2008 CD "Best of Yoshida Brothers".
