The astonishing Michihiro Sato - master of tsugaru shamisen, the fascinating Japanese traditional stringed drum - is the subject of this beautifully filmed, highly expressive documentary, featuring a wealth of dazzling complete performances, as well as informative discussion with the artist himself. While Michihiro Sato is well-known outside Japan for his groundbreaking collaborations with Western jazz and avant-garde musicians - he has played with saxophonist John Zorn, among others - here he concentrates on the traditions of the instrument, playing solo, exhibiting extraordinary drive and precision. Yet as Sato explains, improvisation is the soul of those traditions. Even as the master delves into the old scales and rhythms, one can hear the connections to jazz that attracted him as a boy.
