Fumiyoshi is a shamisen player based in his hometown Niigata, and performs inside and outside of the country. He is good at “Hiki-shamisen” rendition which values resonance of sound. He not only plays standard number of Tsugaru shamisen, but also tries to create new musical pieces of shamisen with Mr. Seikou Nagaoka
who is a composer/arranger. Although a classical music is used as an important base, he is working in recent years aiming at the music of new Nippon beyond the frame of traditional performing arts. →performance movie
