Big Names in Shamisen Coming to Tsukuba
Okay, you might not think that “big names” and “shamisen” belong in the same sentence, but these two guys really do fit the bill. Yoshida Kyodai (吉田兄弟, Yoshida Brothers) are two young brothers who have joined forces to revolutionize the instrument. Their performances are energetic and exciting. I highly recommend attending one of their concerts, and would even suggest that it is worth travelling fair distances to see them.
Luckily, you will only have to travel as far as Tsukuba Center to see them if you buy your tickets soon. They are coming to Nova Hall on June 16 (doors open at 6pm, concert starts at 6:30pm). Tickets are 5500 yen and they go on sale from Sunday, April 15 at 10am. On April 15, tickets will only be sold by phone (029-852-5881) and it will not be possible to designate your seats at that time.
