    Thumbs up ~~ The Yoshida Brothers Collection ~~

    ~NOTICE~
    1/30/12 - As of today all my MF links are gone. I have no mirrors to replace them with. Perhaps when times are safer, the collection may return....

    The Yoshida Brothers
    Yoshida Kyodai





    Ryoichiro Yoshida: born 1977
    Kenichi Yoshida: born 1979

    The Yoshida Brothers were born and bred in Noboribetsu, Hokkaido. Each picked up the shamisen at the tender age of five, and began studying Tsugaru shamisen under Takashi Sasaki I in 1990. After sweeping prizes at national Tsugaru shamisen conventions, the brothers made their major debut in 1999. The debut album sold over 100,000 copies, which is an extraordinary figure for a traditional folk music release.

    They won the "Traditional Japanese Music Album Of The Year" category of the 15th annual Japan Gold Disc Award, as well as the "30th Anniversary Of Normalization Of Japan-China Diplomatic Relations Commemorative Special Prize" of the 17th Annual Japan Gold Disc Award.

    In 2002, the brothers went on their first national tour entitled "Live Soul" performing in 30 cities. The following year, they made their US debut with album Yoshida Brothers from Domo Records and performed in New York and Los Angeles.

    International release followed in Korea in 2004 where they had performed their first concert in Seoul in addition to the domestic tour that included 28 cities. In the meantime, they released their second US album, YOSHIDA BROTHERS II, and went on a US promotional tour, visiting seven cities. It was a year of significant breakthrough, with participations in other various projects such as an international exchange event in Sweden and a TV commercial in Japan.

    In 2005, the brothers recorded an album in Los Angeles, followed by a West Coast tour and a concert in Hawaii. In 2006, they toured the US, Spain, and Hong Kong. In Hong Kong they released their very first greatest hits album in their career, and marked favorable sales. Domestically, they launched a shamisen-only national tour. And in 2007, their music created buzz in the US as their music was used in the TV commercial of Nintendo's Wii. The end of that year, the brothers record their much-anticipated album in U.S. that is yet to be released.

    In 2008, they released album "Best of Yoshida Brothers" and toured in US and Canada.

    As one of the artistic groups whose scope of activities go way beyond that of traditional Japanese music, the Yoshida Brothers continue to take not only Japan but also US, Europe, and Asia their stage. Their future activities are all the more looked forward to.

    I also own Yoshida Brothers/Soulful, Yoshida Brothers II/Frontier, Yoshida Brothers III, and Hishou, so if anyone would like lossless versions, just let me know.

    Thanks for this! I love Yoshida Brothers, though their CDs can be hard to find at times.

    I downloaded Ibuki, but when I tried to extract it it says track 6 is corrupt. I've tried extracting it with both WinRAR and 7-zip, and I have tried re-downloading it twice and it doesn't help. Any advice?

    That's odd...I didn't find any problems, but I re-did everything and uploaded again. Let me know if this works any better.

    Brilliant work Beulah Thank you for that re-up. It works perfectly now. I credited you with the album and removed it from the missing list.



    It sounds absolutely wonderful btw.

    UPDATE


    I seem to have stumbled across some trouble for our missing list. Nearly all the rest of the missing cds were labeled under Soooony (misspelled on purpose). All the ones under that label are under the line.


    I have found Renaissance, but I can't post the link here for said reason. But I suppose.......


    <.<



    >.>


    You could pm me if you want it.


    I suppose that wouldn't hurt.............

    It seems to me that Hisho Shamisen Dake no Sekai Vol 1 is the same as Hishou. Does anyone have any info to confirm or deny this?

    ^ On a quick search to some of the sites I studied up on, it seems you are correct. At least according to [Hidden link. Register to see links.]. I have taken it off the missing list.

    UPDATE


    I have acquired their single Rising It is now in the 'pm for request' section.


    You may notice that I have deleted 'Not Like Me Feat. Yoshida Brothers by Choir Boy - 2007' from the missing list. Upon further study, I discovered that that track is on the 'Another Side of Yoshida Brothers' album. So we'll have it when we get that album.... if only I could find it *makes a rage face at the internets*

    That about sums it up! I heard "My Heart Holds" on sattelite radio the other day & loved it. Checking out the rest of their material should prove to be a real treat.

    Sorry, I hadn't seen your edit until now =P This doesn't sound familiar to me at the moment, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it is Yoshida and quite possibly from the Another Side of Yoshida Brothers album. That thing is so dang elusive >o< I've been searching for it for months and still can't find a half decent version to share...... I think I did dl a crappy version of it, but I can't seem to find it..... I might have deleted it.....


    edit - I think I just might end up streaming it.......

    edit 2 - Well I dl'd the streamed version I found and gave it a listen..... But I just realized nothing on it is what is in that video....... because the video came out before the disc... So lulz on me =p It must have been from something earlier, but I have yet to figure out what.
