About Drum Tao

DRUM TAO’s phenomenal performances consist of incomparable Wadaiko drums and the beautiful melody of Japanese flutes and harps.

In February 2016 DRUM TAO’s Off-Broadway shows in New York were completely sold out. It was featured in Newsweek, who said, “The highly acclaimed debut of DRUM TAO in Broadway will represent not only Japanese entertainment but Japan itself.” Their new long-run production MANGEKYO started in Tokyo in 2017. This show became widely popular and was later expanded to shows over six months in 2018, was performed throughout the year in their exclusive theater in 2019 and over the year of the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

In 2017, they made their major recording debut from Universal Music as a compilation of their work celebrating 25 years, and which ranked as one of the top three in the iTunes World Albums in five different countries. In 2018, they performed in the opening ceremony of Japonisms 2018 in Paris. They also costarred with the Bolshoi Ballet as the opening act of Japan Year in Russia held at The Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, in front of the head of each country. They were awarded Outstanding Cultural Contribution from Oita prefecture, Culture Creators Award from Taketa city in Oita prefecture, the 6th Japan Tourism Agency Commissioner Award and Minister for Internal Affairs and Communications Award from the Japanese government. This season they are set to perform 1,000 shows around the world.
