"Seshami Street Boys" is a performance group centered around the performance of "Tsugaru shamisen", which is a type of traditional Japanese folk music instrument.
With unconventional performances in original costumes,Tsugaru shamisen performances by performers having won prizes in various tournaments, and comedian-like talks, we will excite any audience regardless of their generation.
We can also MC in foreign languages (translated text is required in advance for languages other than English), and we have a wealth of experience in performing at events of various sizes, both indoors and outdoors.If there is a request, we will visit any country or region. Thank you for your patronage.
