SHOTEN – Dubai Taiko Drummers

SHOTEN Dubai Taiko Drummers are the Middle East’s first Japanese Taiko Drumming performing group and part of Dubai Drums. Featuring some of the largest and loudest drums in the world, Taiko is the traditional and ancient musical artform from Japan, and we are bringing the thunderous sounds and pounding rhythms of Taiko to the Middle East, with energising and enthralling taiko performances in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar and the rest of the region. Our performances combine both traditional and modern styles of taiko drumming and range from short, high-impact pieces (perfect for event openings) to full-length shows complete with fusion performances with other styles of music.

Take a look at some of our videos and photos from the events that we have already performed taiko at in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Bahrain and don’t forget to like our Facebook page in order to stay up to date with our upcoming performances happening around the region.

Arigatou gozaimasu (that’s “thank you” in Japanese) and we hope to see you at one of our performances soon!
