Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers

Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers are the UK’s longest established taiko ensemble, and Europe’s only professional touring company of this thrilling & energetic performing art. With over 1,000 performances across the UK, Japan & Europe over the last decade, Mugenkyo have established a solid reputation for their gritty passionate style, setting themselves firmly at the forefront of Taiko drumming on this continent through their rigorous touring.

Mugenkyo’s main work is touring a full-length theatre concert, performing at prestigious venues including London Queen Elizabeth Hall, Gateshead Sage, Cardiff St. David’s Hall, Nottingham Royal Concert Hall, Brighton Theatre Royal, Glasgow Pavilion Theatre, and the Edinburgh Usher Hall amongst others. The group also perform on outdoor stages at a wide variety of music festivals, produce commissions for large-scale multi-media events, have released a range of CDs & DVDs, and have appeared on television programmes such as the Brit Awards & BBC Last Night of the Proms.

Mugenkyo present taiko as a modern & theatrical performing art, with precise choreography, dramatic lighting, and a variety of costumes ranging from the post-apocalyptic industrial to gorgeous earthy silks. The concert is extremely diverse: powerful rhythms on an array of instruments from small hand-held drums to the thunderous reverberations of the huge Odaiko big drum, delicate bamboo flute, soulful voice, layers of percussive soundscapes, and innovative dance tightly integrated with the taiko drums.

Mugenkyo forge a new musical path, developing the genre in new directions with both their own concert performance & their wide-ranging artistic collaborations, truly living up to their name “limitless reverberation”.

“Showcasing the ancient art of taiko drumming with lightning-fast synchronisation & complex rhythms on huge barrel-sized instruments. Hypnotic and primal, the show is an entrancing display of physicality, precision & discipline.”

This show is not one to be missed.
