Japanese sound with the Wagakki band!

If you like ethnic Japanese sound fused with contemporary rock, this might be something for you.

The Wagakki Band consists of the singer Yuko Suzahana and seven musicians that plays drums, guitar, bass, tsugaru-jamisen (Japanese lute), koto (Japanese harp), shakuhachi (Japanese flute), and taiko (big Japanese drum).

This is a really nice song that might need some re-listenings for a westerner’s ear, but please give it a try.
