Winter Celebrations: Uzume Taiko

Uzume Taiko celebrates the rhythm of life itself with its uniquely theatrical blend of music and movement. Using a diverse collection of percussive and melodic instruments as well as taiko drums, Uzume Taiko has developed a dynamic fusion of old and new styles of drumming – bringing a vibrant, contemporary sensibility to an ancient art. With the choreographed physicality of martial arts, the heart-stopping pulse of the O-Daiko and the rhythmic sensitivity of a jazz ensemble, the drummers of Uzume Taiko create an exhilarating sensual experience.

This is part of the Winter Celebrations at Anvil Centre.
