The exciting Tsugaru shamisen tradition derived from blind musicians in northern Japan who roamed the villages singing and narrating stories. The style has become popular in recent years in Japan and overseas through musicians such as the Yoshida Brothers, Agatsuma and Shinichi Kinoshita. Chikuzan Takahashi (1910-98) is the original star of the genre, the person who the current crop aspire to. This CD features fourteen superb performances by Chikuzan Takahashi.
