Dance and drumming spectacular comes to Gravesend

PUBLISHED: 14:40 08 August 2011




Energetic drumming and athleticism are combined as the Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers come to town.

Thundering rhythms on huge taiko drums interweave with layers of percussive soundscapes and delicate bamboo flute in a spellbinding display of precise choreography next month.

The drummers are due to perform for the first time at the Woodville Halls Theatre, Gravesend, on Sunday September 25 at 7.30pm.

Through years of rigorous touring as Europe’s leading taiko drum group, Mugenkyo have developed a gritty passionate style that is uniquely their own, retaining the traditional spirit of taiko yet creating a contemporary sound and a modern stage show that has captivated audiences everywhere.
