Drum TAO – A New Japanese Taiko Experience

Drum TAO is currently one of the hottest acts out of Japan, taking the world by storm with their powerful fusion of taiko drums and entertainment. JAPANiCAN was recently invited to the Premium Presentation, to get a special preview of their upcoming Tokyo show, which will run at Club eX of Shinagawa Prince Hotel in September and October 2017.

We were blown away! We were treated to a 20 minute preview of intense and passionate drumming, dance and performance by an entire cast of fine-bodied men and women. It’s easy to see how this non-verbal entertainment Japanese drum group has already drawn in 7 million attendees in 500 cities in 23 countries around the world. Words won’t suffice so check out some shots from the night.


The Premium Presentation also included a short on-stage interview with costume designer, Koshino Junko, and the director of the TAO Group. Following a photo session and press interview, there was a meet-and-greet party where guests could mingle with the performers, and other members of the Group.


If you’re looking for a treat for both the ears and eyes, and want to feel the raw energy of Japanese taiko drums coursing through your veins like never before, don’t miss Drum TAO’s MANGEKYO. We can’t recommend it enough!

Tickets for the TAO MANGEKYO Tokyo Performance are on sale now at JAPANiCAN.com. There are performances at 17:00 and 20:30 on selected nights in September and October 2017.
