Ancient Japanese percussion performance to sound the gong on Rugby World Cup celebrations

Rugby Editorial 2nd Nov, 2019   0

AN ANCIENT Japanese form of percussion will make its Rugby debut on the final evening of the town’s World Cup celebrations.

Tsuchicugo Daiko will showcase their high-energy Taiko drumming in a performance at the Macready Theatre on Sunday (November 2).

Earlier that day the group will invite the public to test their skills, stamina and co-ordination at a two-hour workshop.

Taiko drumming is more than 2,000 years old and – as a philosophy, a martial art and an artistic discipline – has a strong presence in many aspects of Japanese culture.




The workshop takes place from 2-4pm, with the performance at 7.30-9pm.
