[Yoshida Brothers]
The Yoshida Brothers were born and bred in Noboribetsu, Hokkaido. Each picked up the shamisen at the tender age of five, and began studying Tsugaru shamisen under Takashi Sasaki I in 1990. After sweeping prizes at national Tsugaru shamisen conventions, the brothers made their major debut in 1999. The debut album sold over 100,000 copies, which is an extraordinary figure for a traditional folk music release.

They won the “Traditional Japanese Music Album Of The Year” category of the 15th annual Japan Gold Disc Award, as well as the “30th Anniversary Of Normalization Of Japan-China Diplomatic Relations Commemorative Special Prize” of the 17th Annual Japan Gold Disc Award.

[Monkey Majik]
Monkey Majik is a Japanese-Canadian rock band based in Japan. Consisted of Canadian brothers, Maynard and Blaise as well as Japanese members tax and DICK, their music is a unique mixture of western and eastern influences. They made a mainstream success by releasing numbers of hit songs since 2006. When Japan was hit by Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in 2011, they went to Tohoku and helped clean-up and rescue.
