Living in Japan allows me to hear very traditional instruments often, but NEVER played like this!! Even my wife didn't identify it until she saw it.

Fantastic, but don't keep us in suspense. What's the instrument called?

It's called a 'koto,' and usually it sounds like this... and this. Before this video, I'd never heard it played any other way.

(For musicians, this is a great 'tour' of the instrument. )

Are you sure? The YouTube videos say Luna Lee's playing a gayageum, which is a traditional Korean instrument, according to Wikipedia.

The instruments look very similar, in the same way that a cavaquinho resembles a ukulele.

Years ago I went to a concert by a group called Hiroshima (pronounced Hero Sheema). They played western music (as well as traditional music) on traditional Japanese instruments. The koto player did things similar to that video as well as popular ‘80s music. I was enthralled!

I’m not sure if Hiroshima is still together.

Regardless what it is, I like the modern way to play way better than the traditional

Traditional is good, too. Nice change of pace for this Western ear.

Basically the same instrument. The Koto can have any number of strings just as its Korean relative, be different sizes, and both use variable tunings (most traditionally pentatonic,) and are played with the same technique. Without drawing too fine a line, it's sort of like the difference between an upright piano and a grand piano. Both are played on keyboards, tuned the same way, etc., etc. 'A rose by any other name...'
