Tamashii Daiko


Tamashii Daiko have touched the hearts of many people, showing that Taiko is not merely drumming, but an emotion experienced by the whole body and mind. Tamashii is a pure, raw manifestation from deep within the soul or spirit. It’s an open and honest expression of the here and now.

Founded by Liz Walters in 2000, the Group has performed at many private and public high-profile events around the UK including the Royal Festival Hall’s Purcell Room and Westminster Abbey. Tamashii performs exciting, dynamically-choreographed, traditional and contemporary pieces using a variety of highly energetic Japanese rhythms. While maintaining intensity within tight rhythmic unison, players launch into their own unique and colourful solos. This combination of uniformity and the individual freedom of expression is what give Tamashii Daiko its strength as a team and character as a performance group. www.tamashi.co.uk
