An aisle down the Japanese music

Heartbeat for life with shamisen .

Who says that Japanese music doesn’t rock  ?

Just try it and you will find the answer for sure . It’s too sensational and intense you will definitely feel it in your bones , the way “Yoshida brothers ” played shamisen (three stringed Japanese musical instrument ) is worth watching . When they pluck shamisen with bashi a tempo of high and low frequency is produced which keeps on increasing and decreasing just like our heartbeat .

The history of Taiko is interwoven in the fabric of Japanese history. Regarded as sacred since ancient times, the drum was first used to drive away evil spirits and pests harmful to crops. It was believed that by imitating the sound of thunder, the spirit of rain would be forced into action. At harvest time, Taiko was joyfully played in thanks for a bountiful crop. Today, this spiritual aspect of Taiko has faded with the modernization of Japan. What was once an integral part of daily life is now just a festival relic.

Taiko is dynamic, precise, athletic, festive, and overall impressive music. I came across this video while surfing about the “edo period ” in Japan and just a click on it made my Sunday morning blissful .

  1. hmm. you seem to be interested in japanese music… well its sensational… and at times its soothing and relaxing too… but you focused more on rocking music from japan which is indeed quite good

  2. So my browser finally crashed and I lost the connection 😦 Was really fun chatting with you, maybe we’ll meet on the streets of Paris one day 🙂 The music was really good too.

  3. My wife and i have been really joyous that Chris could finish up his survey while using the precious recommendations he obtained using your web pages. It is now and again perplexing to simply find yourself handing out hints which a number of people may have been trying to sell. We really discover we’ve got the blog owner to appreciate for that. The entire illustrations you made, the simple website navigation, the relationships you can make it easier to promote – it’s everything terrific, and it’s really letting our son in addition to the family recognize that this situation is entertaining, which is certainly very vital. Thank you for all!

  4. Really enjoyed this! 🙂 I have some music pages on my blog and one has music from around the world, I love this so much, I will probably share this You Tube video and maybe another one of theirs on that page, as I don’t have any Japanese music on there yet. So thank you very much for sharing this, it’s been fascinating listening and also reading the information you’ve written!
