Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers present [TAIKO LIVE] at Cumnock Town Hall
Experience the power of heart-pounding rhythms, sharp synchronisation and high energy, in a spellbinding performance on huge taiko drums, at a selection of local venues in Central Scotland.
Mugenkyo are a South Lanarkshire based performing arts company, internationally renowned for their energetic & theatrical modern style based on traditional Japanese drumming. Their performance history includes 1,000s of concerts at prestigious venues throughout the UK, including in Scotland: Edinburgh Usher Hall, Glasgow Kings Theatre, Dundee Caird Hall, Aberdeen Music Hall, Motherwell Concert Hall, Ayr Gaiety, Kilmarnock Palace Theatre. In 2002 they opened the UK’s first Taiko Drumming Centre, and through the years have been featured on various film, TV and recording projects. This year they were filmed for the upcoming blockbuster “Tin Soldier” in Greece alongside Jamie Foxx & Robert DeNiro, performed a 2-week run at the World Expo in Dubai, and last year were featured on the BBC TV Tokyo Olympics programme for the opening big drum sequence.
This autumn, Mugenkyo have been selected by “Scotland on Tour” to present their thrilling live performance at a limited number of local venues in Strathaven, Darvel, Cumnock, Blackwood & Biggar. This is a unique opportunity to experience this powerful art-form by the UK’s leading taiko group, up close & personal at a venue near you. Don’t miss it!
“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.”

Cumnock Town Hall
Cumnock Town Hall was designed by Robert Ingram and built in 1883/4, from red sandstone in the Renaissance style. This beautiful town hall has undergone extensive restoration to restore it to its former glory using traditional materials whilst incorporating updated facilities. The refurbished hall is now an arts and entertainment venue. A sculpture of Keir Hardie, one of the founders of the Labour party and its first parliamentary leader, was unveiled in front of the building in 1939.
