Last 5 tracks of this top 40 of Open Another Door and I can't skip something that most of the music industry skips, all the music coming from the east.
I grew up watching anime and heard them in many languages, but something amazing is the masterpieces they create and never appear on the charts. For example this guys, WagakkiBand.
Powerful rock, traditional instruments added to the genre, lyrics difficult to understand, but what the hell it's still incredible how good it is. There's a Shamisen (japanese instrument that is like a guitar and the pick looks like a spatula, not easy to play) solo, A SHAMISEN SOLO!
It's a magic combination of awesomeness between the East and West world! Honestly, as a music collector I can say I heard a lot of music, I have my own heroes, my own favourite bands, more than favourite song and none of this kind are. BUT, every time I heard this music I feel I should've re check all my tops again.
A freaking Shamisen solo!!!!!
Wagakki Band Ladies and Gentlemen!

About the curator - Rodrigo Medrano
At a very early age, music had an incredible impact on Rodrigo’s life. He was never able to listen to lullaby songs; instead he was served Guns n’ Roses and Aerosmith for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
At the age of 12, he became a melomaniac, collecting albums, EP’s, recording sessions, and researching every kind of genre. All this helped him to get his first job at a recording studio where he realized his life would forever revolve around sound and music.
Working on cruise ships as First Audio Technician allowed him to let loose his passion and expand his knowledge on psychoacoustics, eventually promoted up to being in charge of sound for the hit broadway shows: Rock of Ages and Burn The Floor.
His music library will never stop growing as his melomania will get worse and worse.
