In 1999, the synthesizer operator and music producer Kiyoshi Yoshida released a PACIFIC MOON LABEL album featuring the wadaiko called "Asian Drums". It ranked sixteenth on the music chart for the American FM New Age Music genre.

This, Kiyoshi Yoshida's first album, features Japanese "Taiko" drums. The drum is said to be one of the world's oldest known musical instruments, and the Japanese "Taiko" is no exception, having played an important role throughout Japanese tradition as an indispensable item in divine ceremonies and battles. Thus, the act of beating the drum involves strong spirituality, with the drummer using every muscle in his well-trained body to strike the drum with all his heart. The Japanese "Taiko", considering its structure and style of performance, can be said to be the most analog musical instrument available.

The newly released "Asian Drums 2" is the second of the series that was released in the wake of its success. When we say "wadaiko", we the Japanese, usually imagine a lively and energetic scene, high in spirits and with gallantry but, it feels to me like Yoshida has given the drums an entirely different direction in the case of these two albums. He does not make use of the Japanese sense of time-space or "ma", stretching time or making it short, but instead keeps the basic beat as the basis of the music. It's a good way to blend the sounds of the synthesizer and the wadaiko. The wadaiko which is normally put in the forefront is kept in the back and backs up the entire piece. By keeping the wadaiko which can create a world by just a single sound under lids patiently for just a little while, the ever transforming synthesizer which has no characteristic of its own comes to the surface. The role of the wadaiko here is to set a stable moto-tone feel, rather than to rigorously create a beat. The sounds that are the most often heard are shamisen like sounds playing in unison. This is the cheerful and bright part of the piece, these speedy phrases have the role of pulling the music forward more and more. The wadaiko performers in the album belong to the "Bonten" and is led by Masataka Kobayashi. (Pacificmoon.com).
