In constant demand all over the world, Taikoz bring their dynamic and heart-stopping traditional Japanese taiko drumming to Australian schools, demonstrating how this incredible art form is made relevant to Australia today. Taikoz shows are so engrossing because they are seen, heard and felt: students literally become sounding boards, vibrating along with the explosive energy coming from the stage – a stage some will even find themselves sharing with these masters of rhythm.
