Review from Wanda J.

I loved the show, I took a friend and his 11 year old daughter, he is japanese and she is half, I thought she should see it and she loved it. He thought it was brilliant. My only negative would be that it is a bit long.

Description

The magical excitement of neo-traditional drumming has critics waxing lyrical about TAO’s extraordinary precision, energy, and stamina. With hundreds of sold-out shows and more than a million spectators, TAO has proven that modern entertainment based on the traditional art of Japanese drumming, has massive global appeal.

The stars of TAO live and train at a compound in the mountains of Japan, reaching the highest level of virtuosity only after years of intensive study; however, these performers each bring nontraditional flair to the group by drawing on their diverse backgrounds: one as a hard rock musician, another a gymnast, and yet another as a composer. They offer a young and vibrantly modern take on a traditional art form.
