Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers will be visiting St George's Hall as part of their UK tour, with their full concert of powerful taiko rhythms, huge drums, striking choreography and atmospheric percussion, presented in a dramatic & theatrical stage show.
Last year they thrilled the 40,000-strong audience at London’s Proms in the Park, as well as pushing the boundaries with a collaboration with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra at the London Jazz Festival. Their 40-date autumn 2011 concert tour concluded with a standing ovation at the prestigious Edinburgh Usher Halls.
This spring’s tour sees the return of founding member Miyuki Williams, one of the art-form’s most dynamic performers, to the touring line-up.
The year 2012 is an important one for the group, as the two founders of the group, Neil Mackie & Miyuki Williams celebrate 20 years since first travelling to Japan & starting on their Taiko path. The group will also be performing in Japan in July at the Extasia Festival, and are hugely honoured to be able to represent European Taiko at the foremost Taiko festival.
" ***** Just when you think it could not get any more powerful, it doubles in intensity. This show is not one to be missed."
