Yamabiko 2012
Tsukasa Taiko’s founder Hide Yoshihashi inherited this work from the Japanese National Guard’s Taiko Group in Sapporo, Japan in the late 1990s. Yamabiko has been one of the signature tunes for Tsukasa Taiko and other groups in the Chicago area and beyond. In this version, we are presenting an introductory segment featuring our senior drummer Eigen Aoki and two of Chicago’s internationally acclaimed world class percussionists, Michael Zerang and Hamid Drake. Together with the two prominent artists, we will take you to the breathtaking world of rhythmic domain and ensemble drumming.
