Ryuji composed a number called "Reimei" when he was last in Japan visiting his home in Yokohama. His hometown taiko group premiered the work in the New Year & we're chuffed to be able to play it in Oz at our upcoming Taikoz Live! concert on May 12. It’s also Ryuji’s first piece to be played by Taikoz. Check out this video of him talking about “Reimei” – the meaning of the title, it’s inspiration and a sneak peek of the shinobue melody.

We have a quartet concert coming up called - suitably - Taikoz Live! It’s on MAY 12 at the Darling Quarter Theatre, which is a lovely intimate venue with great sightlines and charged atmosphere.

The program is 75 minutes long and has feature spots for each player... Kerryn's beautiful yoko-uchi (side-on taiko) style in her own number called "Recollection", Ryuji and Sophia pounding on the large hiradō in the powerhouse duet "Void", and Ian playing a new, polyrhythmic solo called “Oke" on his new 2-tone katsugi-okedo.

And there's even two more new pieces to check out - Ryuji's "Reimei" (his first composition to be played by Taikoz, which we're very much looking forward to) and Ian's "Waves", a tour de force for the quartet. Plus other great repertoire works in new arrangements for this particular Taikoz combo.

We'd love to see you there...
