SHIN DAIKO was founded in 1995 by Josef Lang - the leader of SHIN DAIKO. The group which is located in Düsseldorf was one of the first taiko groups in Europe. Performances and taiko lessons were conducted.
In our drumming performance we show traditional pieces as well as modern compositions. Not one specific drumming style is in foreground but the whole variety of rhythms, forms and techniques of the different geographical areas of Japan. Like an earthquake - "Shin" means "tremor" - the whole body is set into vibration. This primal power activates directly our instincts and builds a connection between everything.
SHIN DAIKO also conveyes the way of thinking of an other continent. In asian music the rhythm was conserved as a leading element besides the melody. The combination of music AND motion is an inimitable expression of japanese drumming.
