« Pulse & Roll »  Taiko Concert

3 June 2017, London

Kagemusha Taiko, as a performing group, has toured in the UK, Europe and Japan, as well as giving performances at both the North American Taiko Conference and the World Taiko Gathering in Los Angeles.  The group had the honour of performing joint concerts with the late Grand Master Daihachi Oguchi (founder of the first taiko group in Japan) and has also collaborated with Hanayui, from Sado Island. 


Built on an understanding of the history and traditions of taiko, Kagemusha Taiko is dedicated to helping a new, European style of taiko take root and develop.  This show features new compositions for 2017, and includes a performance of « Brother Drum ».  Rooted in Anglo-Japanese relations, this song is about reaching out and making friends across boundaries, whether political, cultural or geographical.
