Bishkek to host concert of ensemble of Japanese drummers

Bishkek, November 17 / Kabar /. A concert of “Leonard Eto TAIKO Ensemble” (wadaiko [Japanese drums] & tap dance) will be held at the Kyrgyz National Conservatory on November 18.

The concert is organized by the Embassy of Japan in Kyrgyzstan, Kyrgyz National Conservatory, Japan Foundation.

Leonard Eto, a leading hogaku [Japanese traditional music] artist, not only gives unique wadaiko performance, but manages serving as composer and music director as well. This time, he appears with his ensemble members and produces an innovative art form, appealing to both auditory (sound of wadaiko) and visual (movement of tap dance) senses, to represent the fusion of Japanese traditions and contemporary culture. 

This performance is to be held as a commemorative event for the 20th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Japan and Kyrgyzsta, aiming to encourage further understanding of Japan through cultural exchanges in Central Asian countries where people show strong interest in wadaiko.
