Fall Series

On Ensemble, taiko drummers


Wednesday, September 13, 2017
7:30 p.m. at Jones Theatre, Daggy Hall

Copresented with Festival Dance & Performing Arts.

On Ensemble infuses the powerful rhythms of Japanese taiko drumming with musical elements ranging from jazz, hip-hop, and rock to Central Asian overtone singing.

The group is led by childhood friends Shoji Kameda and Masato "Maz" Baba, who combine their study and deep appreciation of Japanese traditional music with equally formative experiences as DJs, electronic music producers, and rock bassists.

Their fearless musical exploration expands the artistic range of these ancient instruments, producing some of the most compelling and creative taiko music today.

Presented with support from:
