The Drum TAO North American tour, underway since January 2020, continues with performances at Krannert Center the week of March 9.

 

Over eight million spectators worldwide have experienced the “extraordinarily talented percussion artists” of the Aichi, Japan-based TAO (Chicago Tribune). The members of TAO, who are both expressive musicians and highly trained athletes, are preserving and expanding upon the ancient Japanese drumming tradition with their modern showcases that include dynamic choreography, engaging visuals, and striking costumes.

 

This performance will last approximately two hours including a 20-minute intermission.

 

Recommended for ages 9 and up.
