The Great Taiko Drummers


Fundoshi is frequently the garb of the muscular drummers of such renowned taiko drumming groups as Kodo and Za Ondekoza. There is a wealth of video material on YouTube and DVD, some superb books of photography, and if you find yourself carried away on the powerful rhythms of the music there are many excellent professional recordings as well.

This is one art form that should extend beyond Japanese culture. Drum beats are an ancient and basic form of interaction with the cosmos. Taiko is one of the most spectacular forms.
