Yasumi on SoundBetter

Genuine Japanese sound. Mystical Shamisen (Japanese guitar) sound and traditional voice. Ambient and chillout. Add the effective spice for your music.

Providing: wav or aiff sound sample data( shamisen or voice ), solo play on your music, compose instrumental, compose song.
I play not only Japanese traditional, but also rock music with my band.
Please note that I marked 'Mandolin' and 'Classical guitar' on Specialty field in this profile because there is no selection for 'Shamisen'.

    Yasumi did an amazing job playing the shamisen on my song. He's obviously a very talented musician. I definitely recommend him. Thank you, Yasumi. 🙏

    Awesome work!

  4. Review by Marco I.

    Yasumi's performance was incredible, he went above and beyond by also providing an extra recording with a more arranged performance, which was very generous of him.
    Given the quality of the performance and recording, I cannot recommend him enough if you are in need of a real shamisen

    I happened to have an Asian song that really needed a shamisen (Japanese guitar), and who better to ask than Yasumi, a professional shamisen player based in Tokyo. The man knows how to play!

  6. Review by Jeffrey M.

    Great working experience with Yasumi. Very good and transparent communication and good and unique result. Looking forward to working together again in the future!

    Yasumi Miyazawa's music is central to the soundtrack of the global documentary feature, "Let Them Eat Cake" (2015), winner of the Best Documentary Feature award at the Paris Independent Film Festival. His music was also integral to winning the "Gold Award - Sound" from the 2013 Prestige Film Festival for an earlier version of the film, entitled "Pastriology". His music is hauntingly beautiful (and recorded to the highest professional standards). I highly recommend Yasumi Miyazawa for other film scores as well.
