Keep the Beat! Amanojaku - Japan's Avant Garde Taiko Ensemble

BY GREGORIO RABU√ĎAL
@ VOL 125 ON MAY 28, 2015

"When I see Amanojaku, what I see is a truly and perfectly Japanese interpretation of world music."

When Gregorio Rabuñal witnessed a travelling Japanese Taiko Drumming performance as a young boy living in Bueno Aries, Argentina, little did he know that the drumming seed had been planted in his mind. It was only later in life as a young man when the seed took root, eventually bringing him to Japan to study under one the Taiko world's greatest pioneers, the very one he had seen as a small boy.  

Enjoy Gregorio's journey into Taiko! 

This was Presentation of the Day on June 19th, 2015.
