It sounds much better with shamisen 😛

It features Kabuki-za and Suntory Hall Orchestra holding the performance on the 250th anniversary celebration of the Great Fire of Edo and 300th anniversary of the Great Eruption of the Fuji-san (Source)

Here is another video from the same performance (We Will Rock You – Queen), but it is not as impressive as Smoke on the Water.

  1. I *love* this video. Ever since I found it on YouTube months ago, it’s been among my favorites.

    You don’t happen to know anything about it, do you? When, where it was performed, in what context? Who the performers are?

    Thanks.
