Saturday, October 22 at 7:30pm the Tower Theatre Foundation invites you to experience the exhilarating percussive power of TAIKOPROJECT and their fusion of ancient Japanese drumming tradition with 21st century American innovation.
TAIKOPROJECT received international notice when they became the first, and only, American Taiko group to win the prestigious Tokyo International Taiko Contest in 2005, winning over all the Japanese Taiko groups in attendance. They have also performed on the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards and with some of the world’s most well-known artists including Stevie Wonder, Usher, Alicia Keys, Kanye West and 30 Seconds to Mars.
Prepare for aural and visual soundscapes showcased by the company’s artful fluidity and graceful movements honoring Taiko’s ancient roots in martial arts.
“This ain’t your momma’s Taiko,” wrote the L.A. Weekly, “But it may be your hip younger cousin’s!”
