The Monsters of Shamisen are an ecclectic, international trio of musicians that are dedicated to using the Japanese Tsugaru Shamisen to interpret all kinds of music.
This video features the boys playing a Macedonian folk song. It is from the earlier days of the group before they adopted tie-dye t-shirts as their standard attire. It is not your standard rock video. They were filmed using a stationary camera seated on a plush love seat.
This little ditty is quite infectious. It also shows off the range of the Shamisen. You probably have not heard it played like this before! I love the concentration and seriousness of these musicians that are truly passionate about their craft.
