Taikoza drummers to appear at Penn State Schuylkill

The Taikoza drummers will appear at Penn State Schuylkill at 7 p.m. Jan. 29, in The Morgan Auditorium. Taikoza is a Jananese Taiko drum group that uses the powerful rhythms of the Taiko drums to create an electrifying energy that carries audiences in a new dimension of excitement. The taiko is a large, barrellike drum that can fill the air with the sounds of rolling thunder. Drawing from Japan's rich tradition of music and performance, Taikoza has created a new sound using a variety of traditonal instruments. In additin to drums of assorted sizes, Taikoza performers also play the shakuhachi and the fue (both bamboo flutes) and the koto (a 13-string instrument).

The performance is free and open to the public.
