Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers with special guests WADAIKO TOKARA


  • Date: Thursday 12th May 2016
  • Time: 7.30pm


with special guests WADAIKO TOKARA


Two mighty forces combine in a first-time earth-shaking taiko concert tour, as Mugenkyo and Tokara celebrate the 20th anniversary of their meeting at the First European Taiko Festival. In 2016 they share the stage again, bringing a new dimension to Mugenkyo’s popular stage show.


Mugenkyo are the UK’s most successful touring taiko group, renowned for their high-octane energy, contemporary look & sound, and gritty passionate style. Japan-based Wadaiko Tokara thunder into the UK with a reputation of speed, precision and mesmerising martial power, with leader Art Lee winning prestigious awards for his electrifying Odaiko (big drum) performance.


The musical fusion of these two contrasting & complementary groups will shake the foundations and thrill the senses, in an explosive coming together of pure taiko energy…. Hold on to your seats!


" Just when you think it could not get any more powerful, it doubles in intensity. This show is not one to be missed."

Edinburgh Evening News


“An invigorating, life-enriching experience… you’ll be poorer if you miss it.”
