Tateishi festa 2009

This is Tateishi festa in Aoto district of Tokyo. This time they had some nice performances and also samba parade. As I understand many foreigners live in that area.

For your attention two songs from two performances I found interesting. First one is two string instrument from China called erhu or Chinese violin. It was good idea to have accompaning music on speakers.

It's unusual to see country band in Asia, I think. This group warmed our hearths with cheerful bluegrass songs. Group has banjo, guitar, violin, mandolin and second banjo.
