Program description: Drawn from the rich folk heritage of Japan, the Ryu Shu Kan presents: Taiko Drums of Japan. This hour long program introduces the audience to the exciting sounds and sights of a Taiko performance. The Drummers play powerful rhythms as they move around the drums with martial arts choreography. Karate & Samurai Forms enhance the feeling of the ancient Samurai spirit of the Japanese people and traditional Japanese Folk dance weaves its way throughout the show. The elegant sound of the Japanese harp -Koto- is played as well as the haunting sounds of the Shakuhachi bamboo flute as an interlude between the thunder of the Taiko pieces. The Ryu Shu Kan is sponsored by the Japan Center at Stony Brook University and this program is part of their community outreach program: Introduction to Japanese Culture.
