The original LP came out before the flood in the 1980s from the two most popular Japanese percussions groups, Kodo and Ondekoza. The O-Suwa-Daiko was originally a percussion ensemble affiliated to a Shinto temple (Shinto being the native religion of Japan) from the region of Suwa, surrounding a lake also called Suwa, not that far from Nagano. The ensemble was used in ceremonials, rituals, and festivals, as well as during wars. A typical style of music has been created, the kagura, as well as dances which were accompanied by the percussions

Wadaiko Matsuriza - Kabuki Gomen - Jyo. 4 years ago 4 years ago. kabuki Gomen.

I think that Japanese Taiko drumming might be described as the musical equivalent of black and white photography. It sets aside all the flash of melody and instrumentation and the explicit narrative of lyrics - all the color. All they leave is the interplay of echoes and silence and tempo achieved with whacking a drum with a stick. DISCLAIMER: One track on this album is five minutes of shamisen music, and another track has some singing.
