East Meets West Busking in Melbourne CBD



My favourite Melbourne Busking duo. Known as the Japanese Blues Cowboy and the Tsugaru shamisen player, the band is called “East Meets West” with George Kamikawa on steel string guitar & harmonica, and Noriko on fretless three-string shamisen.

George and Noriko won the Australian Busking Championships at Mortlake and the Infinite ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ Award at The National Folk Festival in Canberra with their version of ‘Sweet Transvestite’!
