Thursday 2 October, 2008 TaikOz - The Gathering
The fusion of unique Japanese ritual drumming and Western percussion music saw the birth of the high-energy ensemble TaikOz. First performing on the Coast in 2006, the group known for their physicality and spirit are returning with the new show The Gathering.
The powerful and thundering sounds of taiko drumming are counter-balanced with the ethereal and translucent tones of the shakuhachi bamboo flute. Featuring performances by shakuhachi Grand Master Riley Lee and guest percussionist Timothy Constable, the result is a synthesis of east and west, old and new.
The Gathering features guest artist Timothy Contanble from Synergy Percussion, adding a new dimension to the group and raising its expressiveness and power to explosive new levels.
With the motto "To beat with every muscle, bone and sinew in our bodies, with an open and joyous spirit", The Gathering will no doubt be an unforgettable experience for audiences.
