Formed in Aichi, Japan, in 1993, the drummers of TAO relocated to Oita’s Aso-Kuju National Park in 1995, seeking a serene environment to inspire their beat-based stage productions. In an attempt to shed the general image of classic Japanese drumming performances, the multitalented performers combine djembe percussion from Africa with Taiko gymnastics. The musical acrobats also don vibrant costumes as they execute their group choreography with precision, all while banging on gargantuan, rawhide-wrapped drums that moo when played.
