Uzume Taiko celebrates their new CD release, "Skin Tones" and their return from touring Germany in a concert with Curtis Andrews, Alcvin Ramos and Special Guests. Hypnotic mbira and shakuhachi flute melodies cross paths with large choreography on resonating barrel drums. South Indian and Ghanaian rhythmic traditions are heard on the range of textures and timbres of the taiko drums. The shakuhachi flute is paired with odd time signatures and sophisticated drum melodies. This show transmits rhythms from around the globe and invigorates audiences!
