The sound of distant drums heads for Leam
A chance this November to see the UK’s original touring Taiko Tribe with a brand-new show of skill, stamina and red-hot rhythms. As Mugenkyo approach their 25th year, they celebrate the growth of their Tribe of performers from across the globe, with the latest captivating performance of sharp synchronisation, dramatic choreography and sumptuous soundscapes. This is a breath-taking display of high energy and powerful earth-shaking rhythms on huge taiko drums. They are at the forefront of the art-form on this continent and the most artistically prolific taiko group outside of Japan. They have appeared on numerous television programmes such as the Brit Awards and BBC’s Last Night of the Proms .
In 2002 Mugenkyo established the first purpose-built centre for taiko drumming - the Mugen Taiko Dojo, where they run workshops, classes, an in-house training programme, master classes for taiko groups, and outreach projects for all ages throughout the UK.
