Tsugaru Shamisen

tsugaru

The shamisen is a three-stringed traditional Japanese musical instrument.
Playing styles differ according to origin, construction, and playing technique. The Tsugaru-Shamisen from the northernmost prefecture on the Japan’s main island Honshu, Aomori, is built larger than its counterparts from other regions of Japan. This allows for more virtuosity and dynamic in Tsugaru-Shamisen music.
