For one night only, Australia’s internationally acclaimed drumming ensemble Taikoz will leave you breathless as they perform alongside world renowned taiko player and dancer Kodo Distinguished member Chieko Kojima and shakuhachi Grandmaster Riley Lee. Infectious rhythms, soaring melodies, lavish costumes and huge drums deliver a spectacular experience. The Beauty of Eight explores the many expressive qualities of the taiko, contrasting masculine and feminine, extrovert and introvert, tradition and innovation. The title refers to the mesmerising shapes and figure of eight movements that are synonymous with the Yokouchi style of taiko playing. Guest artist Chieko Kojima’s mastery of the style, brings a level of sophistication and expressiveness that is not only beguiling, but also deeply spiritual. Framed within a program of new music composed by Taikoz, The Beauty of Eight is a stunning collaboration that highlights the artists’ inner intensity, beauty of expression and synchronicity of sound and movement.
