Magenkyo Taiko Drummers are coming to Watford Colloseum with their full concert of powerful taiko rhythms, huge drums, striking choreography and atmospheric percussion, presented in a dramatic and theatrical stage show.
Last year they thrilled the 40,000-strong audience at London's Proms in the Park, as well as pushing the boundaries with a collaboration with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra at the London Jazz Festival. This 2011 tour concluded with a standing ovation at the prestigious Edinburgh Usher Halls.
This 2012 spring tour sees the return of special guest, New York based flautist and shinobue player Nobuko Miyazaki who made such a big impact on the group's autumn UK tour last year.
This year is an important one for the group, as the two founders of the group, Neil Mackie and Miyuki Williams celebrate 20 years since first travelling to Japan and starting on their Taiko path.
The group will also be performing in Japan in July at the Extasia Festival, and are hugely honoured to be able to represent European Taiko at the foremost Taiko festival.
