Taikoz – The Beauty Of 8

Is it drumming? Is it dance?

For one night only, Australia’s internationally acclaimed drumming ensemble Taikoz will leave you breathless as they perform alongside world renowned taiko player and Kodo Distinguished Member Chieko Kojima and shakuhachi Grandmaster Riley Lee.

The Beauty of 8 explores the many expressive qualities of the taiko, contrasting masculine and feminine, extrovert and introvert, tradition and innovation. The title refers to the mesmerising shapes and figure of eight movements that are synonymous with the yokouchi style of taiko playing. Trained as a dancer, guest artist Chieko Kojima seamlessly combines her love of movement, sound and rhythm into a performance that begs the question: Is it drumming? Is it dance?

Framed within a program of new music composed by Taikoz, The Beauty of 8 is a stunning collaboration that explores infectious rhythms, soaring melodies, lavish costumes, and highlights the synchronicity of sound and movement.
