The Taikoz 4-tet is back on the road in September and we are
thrilled at the idea of playing real, live concerts again! Because of
social distancing regulations, we are performing two 60-minute concerts,
one hour apart. The program is a dynamic and contrasting one: Ian
Cleworth’s shimedaiko quartet Dedication, followed by the premiere of Ryuji’s new piece for hayashi ensemble called Yasaka. Kerryn and Ryuji composed a beautiful work for the Hang (handpan), shinobue and percussion titled Flowing Water, which is coupled with Ian's high-energy mixed ensemble piece like a ripple. The finale is Of The Fields, Ian's popular tour de force for katsugi-okedo.

Conservatorium. We played there last year and enjoyed the enthusiasm of
