In evening of music from, and inspired by, Japan, Kaminari UK Taiko Drummers will showcase a range of musical pieces, both traditional and self-composed.
Japan has four distinct seasons, from icy winters to humid summers, with cherry blossom and scarlet leaves in between – and this is reflected in the music.
Pieces include Sakura Sakura, Japan’s best loved song, Soran Bushi from chilly Hokkaido, featuring also the story of the Yuki Onna, and the Setsubun demons.
Joined by Michael Graham on the koto and shamisen.
Kaminari UK Taiko Drummers are celebrating 10 years since the formation of the group.
