Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers will be bringing their sensational musical skills to Swindon’s Wyvern Theatre on Wednesday 5 October, with their full concert of powerful taiko rhythms, huge drums, dramatic choreography, haunting bamboo flute and playful percussion.
Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers has been the driving force behind the growing taiko movement in the UK since their establishment in 1994. The group have spearheaded the development of taiko as a European art form, through high profile performances, television appearances and extensive touring.
Through years of rigorous touring as Europe’s leading taiko drum group, Mugenkyo have developed a gritty passionate style that is uniquely their own, retaining the traditional spirit of taiko yet creating a contemporary sound and a modern stage show that has captivated audiences everywhere.
Member Miyuki explains the appeal of the show “a live Taiko concert is a very moving experience… the reverberation of the drums goes right through you – it’s not just about hearing the drums, or watching the show – it’s about feeling the music in a very physical way."
Miyuki will be joined by fellow Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers when they come to The Wyvern Theatre on Wednesday 5 October.
