With the choreographed physicality of martial arts, the heart-stopping pulse of the O-Daiko (a big drum) and the rhythmic sensitivity of a jazz ensemble, the drummers of Uzume Taiko put on an exhilarating performance. Canada’s first professional taiko drumming group, Uzume Taiko has developed a dynamic fusion of old and new styles of drumming — bringing a vibrant, contemporary sensibility to an ancient art. It is sure to dazzle audiences of all ages.

Presented by the Japanese Canadian Association of the Yukon (JCAY) & the Yukon Arts Centre
