EXPECT RAW ENERGY
TaikoProject’s powerful drumming unites ancient Japanese tradition with 21st century American innovation to create a riot of movement and thundering rhythm. It’s been called a tsunami of sound but this highly charged ensemble is so much more. This show will ignite all of your senses with a spell-binding mix of music, theater and precision. The group received international acclaim when it became the first American ensemble to win the prestigious Tokyo International Taiko Contest. Since then, it’s wowed audiences at the Academy Awards and the Grammys with its grace, energy and passion.
