Drum Tao: Mangekyo – Revolutionary New Drumming Entertainment in Tokyo

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Drum Tao definitely entered the international scene with a bang and never left. After a show-stopping performance at Edinburgh's Fringe Festival back in 2004 put this taiko collective into the European spotlight, they've only built on their reputation as one of the highest-powered drumming acts out there.
Now they're back at home and will be headlining the latest version of 'Mangekyo – Revolutionary New Drumming Entertainment in Tokyo' show, which launched last year. On at Yurakucho's Alternative Theatre from May 19 until June 20, with further shows planned at various locations until October, its run will include a total of 241 performances. These drum-bangers certainly have stamina. It's not just about the drums, though: projection mapping and visuals will also be provided by homegrown ultra-technologists teamLab.
