Renowned Japanese drum entertainment group returns to Manila. This year, Drum Tao includes new shows like Rhythm of Tribe and Time Travel. The percussion and dance ensemble features avant-garde drum performances and incredible expertise in acrobatics. The Japanese production uses innovative and contemporary style along with the stunning costumes of Paris collection fashion designer Junko Koshino. The show will run from September 5 – 8, 2019.
‘Tao’ is the martial art of drumming. Formed in 1993, Drum Tao reflects traditional Japanese compositions with influences from Korea, Indonesia, and Maori. Their performances carry a modern take with the group’s own contemporary compositions. Each member of the ensemble trains daily. This training includes martial arts, calisthenics, and dance practices. This allows the group to deliver a unique and world-class theatrical experience with their flawless movements.
Dubbed as “The Japanese Entertainment,” Drum Tao is one of the best Japanese taiko groups performing in nonverbal entertainment. Their timeless drum performances have reached over 8 million people across the globe. Countries like Australia, Germany, UK, and Belgium have witnessed their incredible shows.
