Taiko Drum

ASIAN AMERICAN JAZZ

Description

The ‘Malta' audiences will have an opportunity to get familiar with these unusual instruments at concerts and workshops run by these outstanding USA-based Japanese musicians and teachers.

In Japanese, the word "taiko" means simply "a large drum", and the tradition of playing these instruments goes back as far as the 6th century A.D. Their contemporary version was popularised in the 1950s by the jazz drummer Daihachi Oguchi. Performances by taiko groups are singularly spectacular. They combine music and choreography, whereas traditional dresses and instruments turn the concerts into colourful spectacles permeating with unusual energy that captivates audiences of all cultures.

The MIYUMI PROJECT (named after Tatsu Aoki's USA-born daughter), is intended to bring together instruments from different, seemingly disparate cultures, to mutually draw inspiration from the cultural sources of Asia and America. Here, the sound of the Japanese drums interweaves with the sound of the violin, double bass and wind instruments. Music presented within ASIAN AMERICAN JAZZ is Afro-American and Japanese spirituality and temperament rolled into one spectacular musical project.  

Musicians to perform at concerts and run workshops: Tatsu Aoki, Mwata Bowden, Francis Wong, Jonathan Chen, Hide Yoshihashi, Amy Homma, Melody Takatas
