MUGENKYO TAIKO DRUMMERS
“Like watching Mad Max, Kill Bill, Kodo, Stomp & Keith Moon, all rolled into one big barnstorming display…. Hold on to your seats!”
“Just when you think it could not get any more powerful, it doubles in intensity. This show is not one to be missed.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Edinburgh Evening News
“An invigorating, life-enriching experience… you’ll be poorer if you miss it.” The Stage
Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers present taiko (a form of Japanese drumming) in a modern and theatrical style with precise choreography, dramatic lighting, and a variety of costumes ranging from the post-apocalyptic industrial to gorgeous earthy silks. The concert is extremely musically varied; powerful rhythms, huge taiko drums, delicate shinobue bamboo flute, expressive percussion, and dance pepper the show. Through their 20-odd years of rigorous touring, Mugenkyo have developed a style that is uniquely their own. Retaining the traditional spirit of taiko, yet creating a thoroughly contemporary sound, Mugenkyo are forging a new path with their innovative approach.
