@Mike, Thanks for reinforcing my opinion that Japan is one of the most fascinating places on earth.

If you like traditional Japanese instruments playing modern music, and I do, this is over the top excellent. For shamisen in particular, the Japanese musician, Agatsuma, often plays western music. He's great and you can listen for free on Youtube. Just search for "agatsuma".

That was a cool video.
Thanks for posting that.

It's been on my mind off and on. Uplifts my day some, too.

One thing in particular, I'm struck my how similar it is to native American Indian singing.

We're - All - native Americans now. Eh?

The modern version of that would be: we're - All - Iraqi's now. Eh?
