In Death Valley however………

“Katsutoshi Tsukahara – Shamisen Player” – Richard Smart and me for the The Global Post

2014.01.27

When my good friend and journalist Richard Smart showed me a piece he had written about the shamisen player Katsutoshi Tsukahara for the Global Post and asked if I’d be interested in going to film him rocking out some non traditional music on his 3 stringed axe I of course jumped at the chance – Smoke on the water and Disco played on a shamisen? hell yes!
Check out the video above and head over to the Global Post to read Richard’s excellent piece.
