DRUM TAO Brings Japanese Taiko to Musco Center 4.29

Musco Center for the Arts at Chapman University presents TAO: DRUM HEART on April 29 at 4:00 pm.

Since 1993, Japanese drum and dance ensemble DRUM TAO has combined music and dance to reflect Japanese tradition while incorporating other Asian cultural influences. Breaking past the traditional notions of taiko, TAO continues to create an entirely new art form that is modern yet retains a sense of tradition.

Entrancing more than seven million people globally, TAO has performed in 24 countries in 500 cities, and is the most prominent entertainment in Japan – playing more than 200 shows annually. TAO presented its work at the world’s largest festival of the arts — the 2004 Edinburgh Festival Fringe  and appeared at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. The Arizona Republic calls TAO an “epic visceral thrill.”

 Tickets for April 29 are on sale now for $30-$50 and may be purchased through the Musco Center online at www.muscocenter.org or by calling the box office at 844-OC-MUSCO (844-626-8726).
