Artist Spotlight: Taikoza (Touring from New York City Young Audiences Affiliate)

Taikoza is a New York-based Japanese Taiko drum and dance ensemble that uses the deep, thunderous rhythms of the barrel-like Taiko drums, stringed instruments, metal percussion, and bamboo flutes to create electrifying energy and a highly visual performance. Drawing from Japanís rich tradition of music and performance, Artistic Director Marco Lienhard has created an original presentation that includes exquisite and colorful dances in full costume, replicating festival atmospheres. Taikoza provides a powerful, yet graceful synthesis of sound and motion, visual delight, and fun, educational audience participation all over the world.
