ABOUT THE EVENT

Come and immerse yourself in a little Japanese culture and prepare to feel the POWER of the mighty Japanese drums with the Tengu Taiko Drummers.

A show of both traditional and contemporary pieces, with infectious beats that are energetic, exciting, and as much a visual show as it is to listen to. This performance also includes the Shishimai lion dance, which is very rarely seen in the UK!

If you've not seen Taiko Drummers in action before then you're in for a real entertainment treat.

ABOUT THE GROUP

The Tengu Taiko Drummers were formed in August 2018, and came about via the Tengu School of Taiko, a teaching project started in 2009 by Tengu founder Jared Hardwick to share the benefits of this fun performing art to more people. While conducting regular classes over the years, a core group of regular individuals with a desire to further their skills, were invited to move up to intermediate level, and after more intense training, were ready to form the performing group.

We have an extensive repertoire and play both traditional and contemporary pieces. Most of the pieces we write are influenced by Japanese culture and folklore, but we sometimes use influence from other cultures and themes which brings diversity to our shows.

NOTE FROM THE ORGANISER

I met Jared (founder of Tengu Taiko Drummers) about four years ago when he and some of the students from his Taiko school in York performed in Morley. I was blown away by the energy of their performance and immediately fell in love with Taiko drumming. I have since been twice to see Taiko drummers performing live at the Grand Theater in York and have loved every minute of the spectacle. If you're looking for something a little different to take your whole family to see then I would suggest that this event will be well worth booking in your diary. (Rob Linden, Event Organiser.)
