Taiko drumming is a Japanese culture that dates back to many centuries ago. How often do we have a cultural performance being improvised for modern society entertainment and embraced by the current generation to huge popularity. We didn’t managed to witness first hand during our trip to Japan last year, so we are extremely fortunate to be able to catch Drum Tao in Singapore and only for 4 shows!
World renowned Japanese martial arts and drum extraordinaire, Drum Tao, will be back for a spectacular brand new production early next month. Fans can look forward to a whole new experience in Drum Tao – Rhythm of Tribe which aims to deliver a blockbuster grandeur in this latest production. With Japanese drums as the center of attraction and spellbinding projections, Drum Tao will bring you on a time-travel journey to a new dimension with the samurai beyond time and space in search of old Japanese virtues. Whether you are a fan of drumming or not, you will definitely enjoy the exhilarating and entertaining performance put up by Japan’s Number 1 Sensation!
Seen by more than 8 million spectators over 26 countries and 500 cities, Drum Tao has wowed the audience with their innovative and exhilarating Taiko drumming performances, since its debut in 2004 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
In 2016, their first appearance on Stephen Colbert Show had a huge impact on American people and their first Off-Broadway shows resulted in great success.
Newsweek says “the highly acclaimed debut of DRUM TAO Off-Broadway represents not only Japanese entertainment but Japan itself.”
In 2018, DRUM TAO has 241 night-time performances, called “Mangekyo” in Tokyo for tourists from around the world and is supposed to have a year-round show in Tokyo from 2019 through 2021.
For this achievement, DRUM TAO has been the recipient of The 6th Annual
Commissioner Award from the Japanese Tourism Agency, as well as being named “Outstanding Cultural Contribution” from Oita Prefecture and Minister of International Affairs and Communications Award. TAO rewrites the history of traditional Japanese drumming, and yet proudly remains the greatest Drum Performers in Japan.
