About our "Evolution".

Evolution is an exhilarating programme of original or adapted works created to mark the 10th anniversary of the Tamashii Taiko Drummers. We are celebrating our ongoing journey, which includes teaching taiko to 500+ people and performing for the public more than 500 times.

Each composition within Evolution blends traditional elements of taiko drumming with contemporary influences. As a performance troupe, our point of difference is giving ancient musical traditions an enthralling twist of modernity.

A memorable feature of the programme is the inclusion of four flautists. They play ancient compositions on traditional side-blown Japanese bamboo flutes (fue). This type of flute became popular during the Nara period (AD 710 to 794) of Japanese history.

Our Evolution troupe includes 25 drummers of varying skill levels, from beginners to advanced virtuosos. They come from every corner of New Zealand culture, but they share an overwhelming devotion to Japan’s most impactful musical art form.

Whether you’re a taiko aficionado or you’ve never seen this music form before, Evolution is going to rock your world.
