The Dojo Drummers performance is energetic, colourful and a highly choreographed spectacle of powerful rhythms and explosive energy, performed in full costume. Taiko drumming is a visual and dynamic art-form, and has become hugely popular across the world.
The Dojo Drummers represent the Mugen Taiko Dojo – the UK’s Centre for Taiko Drumming – at a wide variety of festivals, special events and private engagements. The group have performed regularly at prestigious events at venues such as Birmingham NEC, London Excel, Edinburgh EICC and Manchester G-Mex. Past performances have also included large sporting events at Murrayfield, Twickenham & Cardiff Stadiums, and numerous outdoor festival appearances across the UK, Ireland and abroad.
The Dojo Drummers perform a varied repertoire, from traditional pieces to modern compositions, ranging from precise and fast rhythms, to powerful evocative beats. The exhilarating rhythms on the taiko drums are accompanied by a variety of percussion, and complemented by exciting martial choreography.
