Michiaki Shirata (白田路明) + Junpei Yamada (山田淳平): Trad/mod Japanese music

Michiaki Shirata playing the shamisen
Today we spent the afternoon at a Japanese speech contest (which Irene placed 2nd in - yoo hoo!) The speeches were followed by a musical performance. I shot a couple of segments since I thought it was a pretty unique sound: traditional music + instruments fused with a modern sound. Apologies in advance for the video quality.
 Here's Michiaki Shirata on the shamisen:

And here he's joined by Junpei Yamada on guitar:
