Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers at The Apex...
Thundering rhythms, muscular synchronisation and a spellbinding display of sheer athleticism…
…Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers return to the road with a brand-new show of skill, stamina and red-hot rhythms to stir your soul!
Europe’s longest established taiko organisation, Mugenkyo celebrate their landmark 25th year in their latest captivating performance, with their tribe of performers from across the globe.
Needle-sharp co-ordination, dramatic choreography and sumptuous soundscapes are wrapped up in a breath-taking display of high energy and powerful earth-shaking rhythms on huge taiko drums.
Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers have been the driving force behind the growing taiko movement in the UK since their establishment in 1994. Through years of rigorous touring as Europe’s leading taiko drum group, Mugenkyo have developed a gritty passionate style that is uniquely their own, retaining the traditional spirit of taiko yet creating a contemporary sound and a modern stage show that has captivated audiences everywhere.
“If ever there was a musical incarnation of raw physical power, Taiko drumming has to be it… as much a physical spectacle as an aural one.... Your whole body begins to reverberate as the soft patter of raindrops grows into a deep rumble. Just when you think it could not get any more powerful, it doubles in intensity." Edinburgh Evening News.
