Full Presenter Profile & Bio
TaikOz is Australia's only professional Japanese taiko drumming group.
The ensemble is based in Sydney and they perform Australia-wide and internationally - from the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House, Pompidou Centre Paris to Tokyo National Theatre and World Kinen Hall in Kobe, Japan.
TaikOz also regularly presents exciting musical items for corporate events. Companies who have enjoyed the amazing energy and excitement of a TaikOz performance are IBM, Toyota Japan, NHK, Allianz, Kirin Beer and the Davos Corporation, and they would love to give you the same fantastic experience!
A typical TaikOz corporate performance may include a short dramatic fanfare on the 250kg "Odaiko" Grand Drum, or perhaps a 10 minute "Matsuri" Festival number of high energy action to "wow" the audience. TaikOz also presents short concerts - always a stunning aural and visual delight!
Employees of companies such as Sun Microsystems have even tried their own hand at taiko drumming by attending a TaikOz Corporate Workshop. The workshops are designed to give everyone a real physical and mental workout while having fun making music together. They provide a great opportunity for team building.
Thunderous rhythms crack, splinter, somersault and hurtle into the air, creating a magnetic hypnotism. Waves of rhythmic invention, born of gymnastic grace and primal ecstatic energy.
