The name Uzume Taiko derives from the Japanese word for "Big Drum" and from the
Goddess of laughter, Ame No UzumeNo Mikoto -- The Heavenly Alarming Female who,
according to legend, began Taiko drumming.
Taiko has held a centuries-old place in Japanese culture and it is from the power
and athleticism of traditional drumming techniques that Uzume Taiko draws its inspiration.
Using a diverse collection of percussive and melodic instruments as well as taiko
drums, Uzume has developed a dynamic fusion of old and new styles of drumming --
bringing a vibrant conemporary sensibility to an ancient art.
With the choreographed physicality of martial arts, the heart-stopping pulse of
the O-Daiko and the rhythmic sensitivity of a jazz ensemble, the drummers of Uzume
Taiko create an exhilarating sensual experience.
