If you ever wondered if there was still a place for traditional folk music in our modern culture, you need look no further than the Yoshida Brothers . The two young men have been playing the tsugau-shamisen for most of their lives. Over the years, they’ve released several albums, incorporating their chosen instrument into just about ever genre you can image. If you needed any more proof of their modern flair, they have also provided music for the Nintendo Wii commercials. The duo’s newest album Prism was just released by Domo Music Group , heralding the band’s arrival on American soil . Hit the jump for a full run-down of the album.
