You can enjoy the exciting live performance of Tsugaru-shamisen which is a genre of shamisen music originating in Tsugaru area of Aomori prefecture in the northernmost area of the Japanese island of Honshu. This genre is played on a large shamisen with thicker strings than those used for most other styles. Tsugaru-shamisen is easy to recognize by its percussive quality (the plectrum striking the body of the instrument on each stroke) and the lift of the rhythms perfomed.
