Accompanied by two koto players, flautist Yoshimi Tsujimoto plays a bamboo flute. The three musicians look like they’ve stepped right out of history.
But when they start playing, it’s probably not the first song you’d expect to hear. And they totally nail it.
They look like a vision from long ago. While their instruments might be traditional, their choice of song is considerably less so.

You can totally rock out on traditional instruments! What you can’t do, however, is judge a book by its cover. We have a feeling that Michael would be proud of this performance.
