Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers are on tour with their new show, Tribe 25, which is coming to the Palace Theatre, Mansfield, on Wednesday, 8th May.

In their 25th year as Europe’s longest established Taiko organisation, Mugenkyo will celebrate the growth of their tribe of performers from across the globe, with the latest performance of sharp synchronisation, dramatic choreography and sumptuous soundscapes, all wrapped up in a display of high energy and powerful earth-shaking rhythms on huge taiko drums.

Mugenkyo are Europe’s leading taiko drum group, originally established in 1994, and are at the forefront of the art-form on this continent, forging a new path with their innovative approach, honed from years on the touring circuit.

Since their last Fringe appearance in 2013, Mugenkyo have developed their unique style still further, fusing the traditional taiko spirit with a modern image and sound, with dramatic lighting, theatricality and humour, and contemporary musical sensibility, captivating audiences the world over with their energetic and dynamic performances.

As well as their extensive touring, Mugenkyo have just released their 6th album ‘Way of the Drum’ and have also released three concert DVDs, making them the most artistically prolific taiko group outside of Japan. In addition to their main touring work at theatres and concert halls, Mugenkyo also perform at large-scale events and festivals at home and abroad, and have appeared on numerous television programmes such as the Brit Awards and BBC Last Night of the Proms.
