Taigu is the Chinese pronunciation of the Japanese word Taiko (fat drum). Although the tradition of taiko drumming has existed in Japan for many centuries, its origins can be traced back to the taigu drumming tradition that grew out of Buddhist doctrines and courtly ceremonies from China. In this 3 movement work, Zhou Long explores the energy and the spirit behind this unique art form, in which organized rhythmic materials generate a dramatic and powerful music.
