Taikotecture: Taiko drumming - Lara Giddings, MHA - Tasmanian Government Media Releases

The first performance of Taikotecture, a spectacular performance of taiko drumming will open tomorrow at the St Michael’s Collegiate Performing Arts Centre.

Arts Minister Lara Giddings said the performance features internationally acclaimed taiko artist Art Lee.

“Mr Lee has been delivering taiko drumming workshops during January in Hobart and Burnie, Ms Giddings said.

“I was pleased to approve an Arts Tasmania grant to assist Burnie Arts Council to bring Mr Lee to Tasmania.

“This has been a great opportunity for Tasmanian musicians to learn from a great master, and to present some fantastic performances to the Tasmanian people.

“Taiko drumming has grown significantly in Tasmania over the last few years, and this performance will feature some of the finest Tasmanian players. ”

Also featured in Taikotecture are Taiko Drum, the original taiko troupe; Matsuriki, a new group of leading Tasmanian taiko performers; and Taiko Chan, the new youth taiko ensemble.

Hobart performances will be held on 4 February at 7.30pm and Sunday, 5 February at 4pm.
