Neighborhood Concert: Soh Daiko

Soh Daiko brings the Japanese mass drumming tradition to the stage as vibrant contemporary performance art. The ensemble’s powerful, energy-infused performances merge dynamic dance choreography with traditional Shinto music and original compositions by ensemble members. Soh Daiko collaborates with a wide range of musicians, from Korn to Kanye West. You may have also seen them on MTV or the Late Show with David Letterman!
