Japanese drumming

 

This isn’t just drumming – this is an amazing combination of percussion instruments that look like beautiful sculptures, explosive and hypnotizing sounds of Taiko drumming and the perfectly in sync, choreographed movements of drummers with costumes and bodies that resemble fine art. You will marvel at the athletic energy, stamina and skill these Japanese musicians display. To reach this level of precision, the TAO stars live and train for many years at a compound in the mountains of Japan. Among the performers is a hard rock musician, a gymnast and a composer, each bringing something unique to the presentation.

TAO: Phoenix Rising
