    Despite the popularity of Japanese taiko drums across the U.S., American practitioners and the general public have had few opportunities to experience the art of legendary Eitetsu Hayashi with his ensemble, Fu-un no Kai.

     

    Internationally recognized as the founder of the method of playing taiko as staged art, Eitetsu has toured extensively around the world to share the art of Wadaiko which epitomizes the essence of beauty and discipline of Japanese culture.

     

    Making his debut with the American Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in 1984 as the first-ever solo taiko performer, Eitetsu has played with major orchestras including the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Berlin Philharmonic as well as with world renowned artists including Yosuke Yamashita, Sadao Watanabe, Kim Duk-Soo, and Mamady Keita to name just a few. The Bay Area concert is part of the master artist’s Central & North American tour as Japan’s Cultural Envoy, and will feature the master artist’s signature O-daiko (Giant Taiko) solo as well as his superb ensemble performances. Taiko drums made by a 400-year old Asano-family are being shipped from Japan for the concert.
