ø WADAIKO YAMATO - The Drummers of Japan

Wadaiko Yamato  is a Japanese musical group of taiko drummers, brain-child of Masa Ogawa formed in 1993. "Wadaiko" means Japanese drum and "Yamato" was the former name of the city, the present day Nara prefecture, the group's birthplace. It all started when the group played a piece called "Hyuga" composed by Masa Ogawa in a festival held at the Toichi Shrine in Kashihara-shi, Nara. Ever since then, the group has made over one thousand live performances to over one million people in more than 20 countries in across the globe. It was at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1998 the group performed their international debut and was awarded the "Spirit of the Fringe" award. Subsequently a year later they headed for more performances on three international tours, covering South America, six countries in Europe, and Israel.

Impressive drummers performance! Is it similar to the Chinese 24节令鼓?

I guess so they are quite similar, just like 'Dulsori' in Korea and many many more musical drummers group. IMO the late Master Tan Hooi Song, co-founder of the 24 Festive Drums in 1988, the very first in Malaysia and the world. RIP Master Tan.
