SESHAMI STREET BOYS

Aiming for "visually interesting shamisen" and "comical shamisen", we initiated our unprecedented "physical Tsugaru shamisen” performances in 2001. We conducted street performances in various places, and passed the first "Heaven Artist" audition––for selecting licensed street performers who are officially recognized by the Tokyo Metropolitan government. Since then, we’ve appeared on various media and participated in a number of events and festivals, not only in Japan, but also around the globe. We captivate a ton of female fans with our warm heart and thick skin, and the age-range of our fans is pretty wide, too, from a high of 100 years old to a low of 75 years old. With a combination of unique staging that combines legitimate Tsugaru shamisen performance with comedy that everyone can laugh to, and our skill and talking ability cultivated on the streets, we are a talented group that can overwhelmingly excite the audience better than anybody else, regardless of the audience's age, sex, location, and how hungry or hungover they are.  At least, we think so.
