1 Japanese Cultural Drum Performance on Tue Feb 03, 2015 1:48 am

A month ago I had a chance to play at a gig. During our half hour break there was a Japanese drum team that performed. It was loud but I really liked their rhythmic patterns.

Does anyone know the name of these drums or it's performance style?

Thank you Pete. Yes, Taiko Drums. They have a huge, deep and round sound that permeates throughout the room's atmosphere....Just totally engulfing the air in the room. What an experience to behold! I did have a chance to speak to the leader of the band and showed my interest in learning to play these drums within a team approach. They heard me play with my band prior to that and was more than willing to welcome me into playing with them. Being it's very discipline artform, I may not have time carved into that kind of commitment, more less my own time with my drums squeezed into my weekly agenda.

FYI, reason why you don't see my cymbals is due to them pushing all our instruments to side making room for those incredible drums. They also permeated the real estate of the stage Wink

But thank you for that video simply wonderful!  bounce  bounce  bounce

I had a recording of Isao Tomita doing his synth thing with the kumi-daiko group Kodo, from back in the 70s. Cool album.

Taiko is almost a religion. Major discipline to be in a group.
