Its funny that the disco music and drum sound beats haunts me again, it LSS me the music titled "Taiko is the name of the Japanese drum" . Okay let's start here a topic about Japanese drums.
“Taiko” or “Waidako” the Japanese word for drums, the roundest drum in the world, is used in the old ages as a musical instrument for traditions and celebrations, music performance for castles and shrines, and also a used for warfare to guide the soldiers in their marching pace and attack to their enemies, for this generation, the war is no longer present, and castle and shrines are already act as national treasures, music performed by a drummer using Japanese Drums are already an evolved art form, adding some acrobatic stunts, colorful costumes, a suspense and tension seen from the drummer as they hit the drum so hard with all their might, the performance level is pack with high energy. The Japanese drum was in Chinese origin and was brought to Japan during the 500BC (wiki info), but now the drum is now scattered around the world, but the uniqueness of the sound and its performer only present in Japan.
Next month,we will witness another Japanese drum performance, a top performer group based in Japan will come here in Manila to perform the ART OF JAPAN DRUM – The Drum Tao. They will have only 10 shows here in Manila starting on July 12-22, 2012 at the Newport Theater at Resorts World Manila.

I’ve been invited so many times of other Japanese drum shows in the past, I got some interest but I didn’t go the chance to see them live, it was one of the most request performance here in Manila in every Nihongo celebration of a certain month. This year,I’ll take this chance to see another group with world class touch, my hands are itchy to write a review and also meet the drummers personally.
