TAO
A Lensic favorite, TAO’s modern, high-energy performances showcasing the ancient art of Japanese drumming have transfixed audiences worldwide. Combining highly physical, largescale drumming with contemporary costumes, precise choreography, and innovative visuals, the performers of DRUM TAO 2020 create an dynamic, unforgettable production.

More than 800 million spectators across the world have been touched by DRUM TAO.

DRUM TAO’s stage is created through phenomenal performances and expressions consisting of incomparable “Wadaiko-drums” and the beautiful mesmerizing melody of Japanese flutes and harps. It is the “Japanese Entertainment” for a new generation that completely surpasses expectations.

In February 2016, their Off-Broadway show in New York ended up with great success! It was featured in the weekly American magazine, Newsweek stating “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 night entertainment aimed at international tourists became widely popular and was later expanded to shows over six months in 2018. It has been announced that this will be performed in their exclusive theater from April, 2019, over the year of the Tokyo Olympics.

In 2017, they made their major recording debut from UNIVERSAL MUSIC as a compilation of their work for 25 years, which ranked as one of the top three in the iTunes World Album Ranking in five different countries.

In 2018, they performed in the opening ceremony of “Japonism 2018” in Paris, France. They also costarred with the Bolshoi Ballet as the opening act of “Japan Year in Russia” held at The Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, Russia, in front of the head of each country.

They appeared on the most renowned Japanese music program, “The 69th NHK Kohaku Utagassen” in 2018.

They were awarded “Outstanding Cultural Contribution” from Oita prefecture, “Culture Creators Award” from Taketa city in Oita prefecture, and “The 6th Japan Tourism Agency Commissioner Award” and “Minister for Internal Affairs and Communications Award” from the Japanese government.
