The Sailor Moon Theme On Traditional Japanese Instruments

By Brian Ashcraft on at

You might have heard “Moonlight Densetsu,” Sailor Moon’s opening theme song before, but probably not like this.

As Japan Trends points out, shamisen player Nami Kineie has done a more traditional version of the song, accompanied by such instruments as the fue, koto and shakuhachi.

The resulting arrangement and performance works surprisingly well.
