More than 800 million spectators across the world have been touched by DRUM TAO. DRUM TAO’s stage is created through phenomenal performances and expressions consisting of incomparable “Wadaiko-drums” and the beautiful mesmerizing melody of Japanese flutes and harps. It is the “Japanese Entertainment” for a new generation that completely surpasses expectations. In February 2016, their Off-Broadway show in New York ended up with great success! It was featured in the weekly American magazine, Newsweek stating “The highly acclaimed debut of DRUM TAO in Broadway will represent not only Japanese entertainment but Japan itself”.

“It’s hard to make something that’s interesting. It’s really, really hard. It’s like a law of nature, a law of aerodynamics, that anything that’s written or anything that’s created wants to be mediocre. The natural state of all writing is mediocrity… So what it takes to make anything more than mediocre is such an act of will…” – Ira Glass
