DRUM TAO was established in 1993 with the dream of creating the best show in the world using “Wadaiko”(Japanese drums), an instrument which has a very rare and unique variety of sound expressions. DRUM TAO, based in Oita, Japan, started creating their own music, stage set-ups, and costumes to produce their unique brand of entertainment. Many talented artists gathered to contribute to this creation from all over the world, resulting in peerless and modern Japanese entertainment.
