Taiko Film is a documentary that introduces us to the enthralling world of Japanese Taiko. We will learn about its origins, history and evolution throughout centuries, its many applications and styles, its expansion to the world and its influence in modern culture, both Eastern and Western.
The documentary will include interviews to relevant taiko figures, as well as other personalities related to this artistic discipline, and performances of several groups and styles.
The project will be an ode to Music in general, and to taiko in particular. A praise for music’s best qualities through an instrument with a sound so basic but capable of transmitting/ sharing emotions, bringing people together and promoting dialogue.
