Drum up something different
Taiko is an ancient Japanese art form, but TAIKOPROJECT artists aren’t purists. This premiere drumming ensemble has recorded with Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, and John Legend and played at the Academy Awards and the Grammys. Their performances blend in electronic instruments, hip-hop, storytelling, and film. Taiko is where movement and rhythm are equals. Beating the large drums requires an intense physicality — musicians follow precise choreography, often bending and lunging to alternate between drums. The result is passionate, fluid, and fiery, a thrill you can feel in your veins with every beat.
TAIKOPROJECT is presented by Anchorage Concert Association.
Runs approximately 2 hours including intermission.
BABIES - Discouraged. Ticket required for all ages.
CHILDREN - Recommended for ages 6 and older.
Disruptive patrons of any age will be expected to exit the show.

On occasion, the artists may join as well. You do not need to be a ticket holder to attend this talk.

Assistive Listening Devices - Sound from the stage is broadcast directly to you by our in-house listening system (Listen Technologies LR-52000-072).
