Taiko On! The name is not only a team cry to strive - to put all of one’s energy and focus into the drums - the Japanese characters also resonate with the meaning “Sound of the Drum”. The members of this dynamic troupe have drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds and come together to train and display their love of the Japanese drums to the wider Perth audience
About this event
Immerse yourself in the sonic warmth of the world's deepest and most resonant musical instruments. Submerge in sound and feel the bodily reverberation as fluid morphing soundscapes wash through you. Inspired by the penetrating relaxation of the unique Japanese Onsen (hot spring bath) this unmissable experience unites traditional Japanese drums, percussion and mantra, Australia's earthy didgeridoo, and much more. Presented by lead performers of Taiko On - Perth's Premier Japanese Drums and Festival Music Ensemble.
