Experience the thunderous rhythms of the ancestral Japanese Taiko drums and the magical sounds of the bamboo flutes. Hear the 150 lb. Taiko drums; give thunderous voice to traditional and new compositions.

Roughly translated, Taiko means big drums-and that’s exactly what Taikoza brings. Big Drums, powerful rhythms, and electrifying, room-thumping energy. Taikoza ‘s music draws from Japan’s rich tradition of performance to create a highly visual performance. With colorful traditional costumes and dynamic motion, Taikoza’s shows are immensely popular with audiences of all ages and their music has been featured in movies and on the Nintendo’s wii game: Red Steel 1 and 2.
