This is Noriko, of  George and Noriko  fame, at Coastella 2018 who, well best to let them tell you: George and Noriko break all the rules. The duo brings something unique, something unexpected. Known as the Japanese Blues Cowboy and the Tsugaru shamisen player, they have been kicking up a storm wherever they play.  George’s lightning fast blues licks & growling harmonica enhanced by Noriko’s percussive of the traditional Shamisen (Japanese banjo) has morphed into a kind of bluegrass hard country blues with a Japanese twist. It's quite something - go listen to their music, it's pretty bloody kick ass.

Apparently no computers were involved. I read an article about it a couple of weeks ago and I think they said they had to do about 50 or 60 takes to get it right.
