Drum Tao Live in Manila


July 17, 2012 by admin

I was excited when a friend invited me to watch the musical martial arts sensation. From what I know Drum Tao was formed in 1993, the group had no idea they were going to be one of the most sought-after musical acts across the globe years later.

Having captivated over 17 countries and 500 cities, Drum Tao has finally arrived in Manila and will be showcasing its unique blend of intricate choreography and distinct taiko through “Travelife Drum Tao Nights,” July 12-22 at Resorts World Manila’s Newport Performing Arts Theater, as part of the ensemble’s Art of Drum Tour 2012.

DRUM Tao employs traditional Japanese instruments and diverse musical arrangements, energetic dance steps and martial arts moves, and neoclassical Japanese wardrobe.

With performances featuring traditional Japanese instruments and diverse musical arrangements, a well-studied combination of invigorating dance steps and martial arts moves, and neoclassical Japanese wardrobe, Drum Tao Nights” is not just any cultural show.

It was an amazing show and they definitely entertained and made everyone in the audience really amazed. The music and beat and the magic of Drum Tao definitely pulls you in.

With highly trained Japanese musicians aboard, Drum Tao has innovated and mastered a fine balance between traditional Japanese culture and contemporary performance art, and made the art of Japanese drum-playing more relatable and accessible to a wider range of audiences.

The group’s annual taiko tour has added to its acclaim, and each adrenaline-rush inducing show it produces continually reaps praise from viewers worldwide.

Drum Tao Nights ’ is a multisensory performance. There’s never been anything like it in the Philippines… It draws you in and you just experience it from all angles,”
