Experience the power of heart-pounding rhythms, sharp synchronisation and high energy, in a spellbinding theatrical performance on huge taiko drums, returning to Biggar Corn Exchange with a brand new concert following on from last year’s sold-out show.
Mugenkyo are a South Lanarkshire based performing arts company, internationally renowned for their energetic & theatrical modern style based on traditional Japanese drumming. Their performance history includes 1,000s of concerts at prestigious venues throughout the UK, including in Scotland: Edinburgh Usher Hall, Glasgow Kings Theatre, Dundee Caird Hall, Aberdeen Music Hall, Motherwell Concert Hall, Ayr Gaiety, Kilmarnock Palace Theatre. In 2002 they opened the UK’s first Taiko Drumming Centre, and through the years have been featured on various film, TV and recording projects. Last year they were filmed for the upcoming blockbuster “Tin Soldier” in Greece alongside Jamie Foxx & Robert DeNiro, performed a 2-week run at the World Expo in Dubai, and were featured on the BBC TV Tokyo Olympics programme for the opening big drum sequence.
This is an unmissable opportunity to experience this powerful art-form by the UK’s leading taiko group at a venue near you. Last year’s show sold out, so book early to guarantee a seat!
“Showcasing the ancient art of taiko drumming with lightning-fast synchronisation & complex rhythms on huge barrel-sized instruments. Hypnotic and primal, the show is an entrancing display of physicality, precision & discipline.”
“This show is not one to be missed.”
