The Japanese taiko culture, actually origins from China's drum culture. Chinese people invented drum in Xia Dynasty, and drum was introduced to Japan through China during Sui and Tang dynasties (581-907 AD). But since Chinese mainland experienced the Cultural Revolution decades ago, the performance of drum had been devastated and destroyed.

Though the Japanese taiko origins from China, they are building up their own brand now. The most significant feature of Japanese taiko, I believe, embodies the spirit of Bushido. They do not look like playing drum but showing the spirit of samurai, as they wave the drum sticks like wielding samurai swords. Different from the Chinese drum performances, which play gently and give more emphasis on expression, eyes contact and upper body, Japanese taiko is played with the whole body, with great strength.

It will be clearly sensed that Japanese taiko performances have involved many Western music elements from our this taiko record made on the west coast of the United States, which is totally different from their former performance style. All the performers just played the Japanese-style taiko before, but now differ. (
