TAIKOPROJECT has astonished audiences worldwide since 2000 with their unique blend of traditional taiko drumming and innovative aesthetics. Percussive power, dynamic music, and graceful choreography work together to weave a gorgeous narrative you’ll have to see (and hear!) to believe!TaikoProject’s powerful drumming unites ancient Japanese tradition with 21st century American innovation to create a riot of movement and thundering rhythm. It’s been called a tsunami of sound but this highly charged ensemble is so much more. This show will ignite all of your senses with a spell-binding mix of music, theater and precision. The group received international acclaim when it became the first American ensemble to win the prestigious Tokyo International Taiko Contest. Since then, it’s wowed audiences at the Academy Awards and the Grammys with its grace, energy and passion. TAIKOPROJECT was founded in 2000 in Los Angeles, California by a group of young, emerging taiko drummers. They were seeking to create a truly American style of taiko, blending traditional forms in which they were raised, with an innovative and fresh approach to the Japanese drum. About the preshow Curtain WarmerTicketholders are invited to join us at 6:40 PM in the Orpheum Theater lobby for a preshow activity. The Lincoln-based Taiko drumming group demonstrates the art of Taiko with a mini-performance before the show.
