Shakuhachi rock and roll

Rin’ is a female pop group that mixes modern popular music styles with traditional Japanese instruments like the shakuhachi (a flute) or the koto (a very traditional Japanese harp).

I have an aunt who plays the koto; my brother enjoyed playing Ritchie Blackmore guitar solos on it back in the day.

A few years ago Rin’ teamed up with Lisa Loeb to record “Anti Hero.” Rin’ and Lisa Loeb ride bicycles in the music video from 2006 as she sings about wars and kings and songs and zeros.

Via Urban Velo.
