Description

This program explores the intriguing world of Japanese traditional music through the Shamisen. Tsugaru Shamisen is a kind of shamisen, a three-stringed musical instrument similar to a guitar. Characterized by thicker strings and  a neck, it is played by plucking the strings with a thick, heavy plectrum.

    It was great to experience the traditional Japanese musical instruments! Shamisen is like a Japanese guitar, which has quite similar playing style but completely different sounds. It was fun to play it and I really wanna get one with me if not too expensive haha
