Nagata Shachu proudly presents the all-new production HANA, celebrating the release of it's new DVD.
Nagata Shachu, based in Toronto, has enthralled audiences with its mesmerizing and heart-pounding performances of the Japanese drum (Taiko) since its formation in 1998. The group has toured widely throughout Canada, the US and Italy performing in theatres, concert halls and major music festivals. Taking its name from founder Kiyoshi Nagata and the Japanese word shachu meaning "group," Nagata Shachu has become renowned for its exacting, straightforward yet physically demanding performances as well as for its diverse repertoire.
While rooted in the folk drumming traditions of Japan, the ensemble’s principal aim is to rejuvenate this ancient artform by producing innovative and exciting music that seeks to create a new voice for the Taiko.
