Wadaiko Event at Waseda ICC 2009

On the 3rd of April, a friend and I went to a Performance by タヲ ~Tawoo~

Wadaiko (Japanese drum)
The Japanese “Wadaiko” differs from an average “Taiko” (drum) because of its capacity for producing an extremely large reverberating sound. It is said that in the Jomon Era, it was used as a means of communication. Today, “Wadaiko” is often performed at various matsuri (festivals).  


Obviously the sound quality from my cheap camera, does not do these drums any justice. The sound pressure from the drums made the windows behind the spectator seats shiver. ☺
