Overview

The power percussionists of DRUM TAO combine athleticism and artistry, lending a contemporary flair to ancient Japanese drumming, backed by the mesmerizing accompaniment of Japanese flutes and harps.

DRUM TAO’s pulse-pounding performances blend highly physical, large-scale drumming with precision choreography, beautiful costuming, and dramatic, innovative stage design. In 2016, DRUM TAO took New York by storm with a successful off-Broadway run. Now, it’s traveled to 26 countries and performed for 8 million spectators.

“The highly acclaimed New York debut of DRUM TAO represented not only Japanese entertainment but Japan itself.”

Newsweek

“These are extraordinarily talented percussion artists … seductive, alluring performers.”
