Zuiho Daiko taiko drum performance preview

preview

The Zuiho Daiko drum troupe from Japan performed in front of an enormous crowd last night. The drummers with intellectual disabilities were amazing! We were concerned about the acoustics due to the event being held in an open space, but the taiko drums were more than loud enough and the performers were giving it their best despite their grueling schedule. They had performed at a private function in Kanowit just 3 hours prior to this and taken the 1 hour journey back to play straight at the main Sibu Gateway function.

Zuiho Daiko is a professional taiko drum group with intellectual disabilities and this is their rendition with a flute playing a tune similar to Home on the Range before the taiko drums jumped in and the sonic assault begins. It’s spectacular, spectacular! =D

I’ll have the full writeup done later, they are heading to the airport now for the flight to Kuching for this afternoon’s performance at 3 pm at tHe Spring. Zuiho Daiko is also heading to Penang to perform but I don’t know their schedule over there since it’s handled by a different charity organization.

  1. Wonderful pictures of drumers. Taiko drumimg is a big rage in the States and Hawaii. People love it very much. The sound of drums make all so excited many differents style of playing it. Sharing the many entries to bloggers readers and writers bring all closer together.

  2. Taiko drumming is very popular in San Francisco and there many classes held all over the city. Chinese drumming too is popular. There so many different styles of drumming.

  3. Choonie: That’s great, they had a female performer in the Kuching show, I was told. I saw her but she didn’t play during the Sibu leg of the tour.
    Pixeldoll: Nope, it’s a free performance. It’s sponsored by local corporations as well as the Japan Foundation. It’s not a fund raising show, it’s just to create awareness about people with intellectual disabilities.
    Shelly: Yeah, it’s great to be up close and hear the passionate taiko drummers shouting and all that. :)
    Amy: I love percussion instruments as well, there’s a Chinese troupe over here with 24 huge drums that does an amazing performance. Very loud.
    Tom: Thanks mate! :)
    Nope, it’s the official spelling, some marketing thing, me thinks. It’s spelled tHe Spring with a capital H but a lower caps t. :)

  6. Good weblog, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty good platform you are using. I am presently using BlogEngine for a couple of of my websites but looking to alter one of them more than to a platform similar to yours like a trial operate. Anything in specific you’d recommend about it?
