You feel a taiko drum performance with your whole body. This powerful sound is the soul of Japan: thousands of years of samurai, festivals, bullet trains, and volcanic eruptions, condensed into simple flowing rhythms.
Experience Haere Mai Taiko, one of New Zealand's most authentic taiko groups, at a very special solo concert. This is a rare opportunity to see and hear their dynamic, energetic performance of award-winning modern songs and powerful traditional classics.
Modern taiko drumming fuses centuries-old temple rhythms and '50s jazz, binding them together with a thoroughly Japanese essence.
Haere Mai Taiko plays songs written by two of Japan's most celebrated taiko composers, Hisashi Kitahara and Michiko Nakamori, who have travelled to New Zealand to teach them personally.
Experience this special sound for yourself, an exciting performance of taiko drumming, with powerful ancient rhythms and award-winning modern songs direct from Japan.
