Product Information

This beautiful pack captures and reproduces the shamisen's unique tones faithfully. From delicate reverberations to impassioned, soul-stirring phrases. It's incredible how a mere three strings spun from silken threads can express such a vast range of human emotion with rich feeling.

 

The instrument known as the shamisen can be traced back to the China's earliest instruments. There is arguably no sound to which the Japanese ear is more accustomed. The shakuhachi has little intonation, and the koto, while gorgeous, has no lightness. A mere three strings of the Shamisen spun of silken threads express a vast range of human emotion with rich feeling.

 

The Renaissance of the Shamisen:

 

There is a historical “period drama” boom among the younger generation in Japan, fuelled by the film and music industry. One theory holds that the driving forces behind this boom are director Hayao Miyazaki's most recent works. These animated films feature historical “old Japan” as their setting, and they have been national hits with Japanese audiences. These successful films have granted us a fresh opportunity to see Japan in a different light.
