Fragments from the public presentations at the EC 2009 Fringe events (http://www.kodo.or.jp/ec/event/fringe_en.html).
First Miyake is performed by a group of Kodõ members (some of them do like pink!) :) and the second fragment (starting at minute ~2:20) is from Miyake-jima taiko players (the original performers of this very energetic & powerful style).
Their web site is at http://www.miyaketaiko.com/en/
I thought Kodõ performed fast... but check the guy around minute 9:00.
During the third day of the EC 2009, i was sitting very near the Miyake Taiko guys in Shiroyama. It was amazing to watch them watching Kodõ performing their traditional song.
So many interesting traditions out there...
