Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!

This Queen's Birthday weekend, Yoshikazu Fujimoto & Yoko Fujimoto - two legends of the taiko world - will be visiting Sydney to present a unique series of workshops. 

To express my excitement is beyond words! I’ve grown up watching them on VHS (remember that technology?) and DVD, listening to their CDs, reading articles and watching them in concert in Japan. Taikoz also had the wonderful opportunity to perform with them in 2009. 

Yoshikazu-san sends sound waves across the world and has inspired - and continues to inspire - generations of players in many forms of music making. Yoko-san has a voice that I have never heard replicated. When asking her how she projects from her tiny tiny frame, she just laughs and shares one of many stories of her early days in Sado no Kuni Ondekoza when the ensemble was made to run marathon-length KMs and then sing at the top of their voices at the end - all before breakfast! Yoko just smiles at such times when some of us would completely choke! 

So you can hear the impact these individuals have made on me! Please don’t miss the chance to learn, listen and love their sound in Ultimo Sydney. See HERE for more info. (Kerryn)
