Kagemusha Taiko

October 29, 2010 § Leave a comment

Established at the end of 1998, we promote taiko drumming in the UK. Based in Exeter, we have three different performing groups who have played nationally and internationally in a wide range of locations, from street and village festivals to major venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, and even the Milan Fashion Show.

Kagemusha Junior Taiko has been running in Exeter since 1999. More than a group, it’s a youth taiko programme with members age 10-18 coming from schools within a 20 mile radius of the city. Admission is by audition, usually starting in September. Older players have joined the adult Kagemusha Taiko Group.

Kagemusha Taiko

Our mission is to enrich people’s lives through the experience of taiko drumming.

We create and perform exciting, original repertoire, forging a new style of taiko here in England.

Through our extensive training programmes for young people and adults, we will give taiko a national presence, while enhancing understanding between cultures through international artistic collaboration.

We run public courses and workshops as well as education programmes in schools. We provide teacher training to enable people to start their own taiko groups. We have adult and award-winning youth taiko groups who have performed nationally and internationally, including venues such as Birmingham Symphony Hall and the Royal Albert Hall, besides local theatres such as the Corn Exchange, the Barnfield and the Exeter Northcott.

UK Taiko Festival

October 29, 2010 § Leave a comment

The UK Taiko Festival takes place annually in Exeter. 16-18th July 2010 saw the 6th such event. The UK Taiko Festival attracts youth and adult groups from across the country to perform in outdoor spaces such as Northernhay Gardens and the Guildhall Shopping Centre. Professional groups come from the UK, Europe, USA and Japan to play in local theatres such as the Exeter Northcott and the Corn Exchange. The audiences are not only local people, but include taiko fans who travel from as far afield as Scotland, Holland, Belgium and Germany.
The UK Taiko Festival has its foundation in several guiding principles, including the growth of taiko in the UK, the provision of a performance platform for UK-based taiko groups of all ages and inspiration for new players by the participation of professional and/or international taiko artists.
