Concert Hall Cultural Passport Program Event

This electrifying Japanese Taiko drumming ensemble returns with its latest hit production, Seventeen Samurai, direct from its sold-out premiere run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The explosive Taiko drumming performance captivates with impeccably complex rhythms and innovative choreography brought together by strong athletic bodies in stunning contemporary costumes. The performers are highly trained athlete-artists who undergo years of rigorous training to reach their impressive level of virtuosity. While Taiko drummers are traditionally male, this groundbreaking ensemble includes several female drummers. The result is a remarkable and energetic interpretation of this ancient art form. “Extraordinarily talented…incomparable muscular zeal.” (Chicago Tribune) TAO’s energy and precision is sure to amaze children as well as kids at heart!
