EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF WADOKYO
WADOKYO: Experience the Universal Sound that Awakens the Senses, Changes Space and Time, and Creates a Community of One
Through our performances we offer people a moment of timelessness, the opportunity to be touched deeply in the heart while feeling a part of a bigger whole. Attending our performances will fill you with inspiration while you experience new sensations through this ancient instrument: the drum.
There is a very special fascination with WADOKYO – almost a charm that no one can escape. The archaic, powerful beats, trembling drums, the fun and the drumming of the drummers, give the style of WADOKYO a very special magic and attraction.
It is not only the sound of the drums, which captures and captivates the audience, it is also the spirited, energetic nature of the drummers, their unrivaled fun and emotionality, for which they reap resounding applause and enthusiasm.
While we reside in Germany, WADOKYO has travelled across Europe and become an international group, led by founder, Frank Dubberke. At home, these drummers are located in Düsseldorf, where also the affiliated Taiko Academy [LINK TO ACADEMY], headed by Jeannette Petersen, is based.
A Treat for All Senses!
The performances range from the traditional Japanese Oedo Sukeroku Taiko style to the more modern, energy-charged Taiko rhythms, providing once again a captivating experience in the exciting and multi-faceted world of Taiko drumming.
The artists involved are well-known for impassioned top-quality performances on these high-power instruments – from pianissimo to fortissimo and back, with unparalleled precision, infectious emotion and uncontainable enjoyment – a treat for all the senses!
