Drum up something different
Friday, March 9, 2018
7:30 pm // Atwood Concert Hall
Taiko is an ancient Japanese art form, but TAIKOPROJECT artists aren’t purists. This premier drumming ensemble has recorded with Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, and John Legend and played at the Academy Awards and the Grammys.
Their performances blend in electronic instruments, hip-hop, storytelling, and film. Taiko is where movement and rhythm are equals. Beating the large drums requires an intense physicality – musicians follow precise choreography, often bending and lunging to alternate between drums.
The result is passionate, fluid, and fiery, a thrill you can feel in your veins with every beat.
