Drum Tao will have an exciting stage for 2018 with costumes created by fashion designer Junko Koshino. The group reflects on Japanese tradition but also incorporates Korean, Maori, and Indonesian influences. They exploits ancient traditions of the Taiko drumming and martial arts mastery. Some of the songs they showcase are traditional, but most of them are modern compositions created by members of the troupe.

Japan martial arts and drum-playing extraordinaires, Drum Tao is popular for their passionate continuous drum beating, chanting and shouting. It is an original contemporary Japanese production that gave audiences goosebumps with their ground-breaking and spectacular show. They also showcase comical skits exhibiting Japanese humor in between sets.

But, Drum Tao isn’t for the people who find exchanges of dialogues and storyline from one set to another. But rather, it is a full show of pure instrumental that can soothe and refresh one’s mind.

There’ll be around 50 drums playing in a performance by the highly disciplined crew of Japanese Taiko drummers. But other pieces include shinobue, bamboo marimba, gongs, and koto.

Get to know the awesome Drum Tao

But there’s a hardship behind the awesome performance of the group. Drum Tao undergoes intensive training as the performance style has its physical demands similarly on the athletes training habit. Performers train in their own center in the Kuju Highlands on Kyushu called Grandioso. Their daily workout starts at 5 in the morning and ends until 10 in the evening.

Drum Tao

Every day, each member have to exercise including 20 km run, calisthenics, martial arts training, dance, music and drum playing practice. Drum Tao exerts huge energy for the purpose of flashing what they’ve got. On the first ten years of training, 400 trainees dropped out as the founder Ikuo Fujitaka adjusted the training regimen.

Taiko group of drummers received more recognition when they performed at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival back in 2004 where they sold out of tickets for 25 straight days and outsold every other performance group. That fated day become an opening spotlight for them to tour internationally.
