I have heard this sound, mostly in movies, but wasn't sure about the name of the drums.
A powerful sound, not to be missed.
i can almost hear them here. ^0^
I always like hearing these drums' sound.
I'm like VP, movies. I wish I could hear them now.
A sound I've never heard in person before, especially like you described it. I hope to someday!
I have seen and heard taiko played at Shinto shrines but never at Buddhist temples. I wonder how the style is different. Is there any chanting involved?Taiko has become quite popular as an art form here in the States. For example, the San Francisco Taiko Dojo has been around since it was founded by Seiichi Tanaka in 1968. I once saw a live performance, here in California, of KODO that totally blew me away.
Somehow reminds me to listen to ones own beat of the heart, maybe they will be in tune.A wonderful Wednesday for you.daily athens
I saw something very like this in Hawaii one time, in a multicultural parade and exhibition. I don't know if they were Wadaiko, but they were certainly from Japan. Thanks for the memories!
I love the thunderous sound of the drums. It must have been wonderful to watch.
the drums are beautiful so are your photos ;)I wiwh i could listen to the performance !
Hi everyone! Thank you for the comments! I really hope everyone gets a chance to hear the Wadaiko live someday :DTall Gary, yes there was also chanting involved! It was powerful yet soothing :)
We can hear performances of these drums on the plaza next to the Peace Pagoda in Japantown, San Francisco during the Cherry Blossom festival.
I would have loved to see the monks banging the drums. They must have made quite a sound!!
