Yoshida Brothers: Rising
Man! The music rocks! I dug up some more info about these chaps from the Wikipedia:
The Yoshida Kyōdai are Japanese musicians and have released several albums under the Domo label internationally as the Yoshida Brothers.
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 and 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.
