Rhythmic Relations 2013
TAIKOPROJECT rocks the Ford with spectacular drumming and striking choreography. Rhythmic Relations 2013 marks the first collaboration between TAIKOPROJECT and Middle Eastern percussionist Amir Sofi. Sofi’s powerful instrument known as the darbuka (goblet drum) complements TAIKOPROJECT’s crowd-pleasing traditional taiko drums, koto (Japanese harp) and custom-made marimbas. The first half of the concert will feature drumming groups Bombu Taiko, Kitsune Taiko, Loma Pacific Taiko and Tanuki Taiko in an exuberant program that includes more than sixty taiko drummers. In the second half, guest artist Sofi joins TAIKOPROJECT for new collaborative works blending taiko with the Arabic tabla and tambourine.
