The Power of Japanese Drums


First time I have seen and just fell in love in a heartbeat into the Art of Japanese Taiko Drummers about 15 years ago visiting Chinese New Year celebration in Toronto...
Since then I don't miss any opportunity to see the Japanese Drummers performance.
This year we were lucky enough to be on 15th Anniversary Concert of Nagata Shachu, amazing taiko drummers group based in Toronto, Canada.

This group has been bringing the sound (oto) and harmony (wa) of Japanese Taiko Drumming to all our souls during the performance. Next concert will be on March 15, 2014 at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto. I might be go again...this taiko drums sound and power is addictive :))

Abandoned in fall around...

“Do we not each dream of dreams? 
Do we not dance on the notes of lost memories?
Then are we not each dreamers of tomorrow and yesterday, since dreams play when time is askew?
Are we not all adrift in the constant sea of trial and when all is done, do we not all yearn for ships to carry us home?”
