Men mainly dominate the performances but it also includes energetic females that add up their own flair making the event a multi-dimensional performance. The production has been staged in front of millions of people around the globe, in over seventeen countries covering more than four hundred cities.
The Japanese art of drumming is merged with martial arts and a dance group to create the unique type of entertainment for the crowd. TAO also incorporate other art influences from Maori, Indonesian and Korean traditions. The events display not only ancient form of arts especially music but delivers composition based on modern music that are generated by the artists and performers of the show. Originally formed in 1993 in Aichi Japan, TAO shifted to Oita in 1995 to gain opportunity for a better ambiance and location in order to generate fresh ideas. The home base of the production "Grandiosos" is located on forty thousand square meter of area that is protected by stunning natural environment. Three rehearsal halls allow performers to create unique music under perfect setting and conditions. The magnificently built infrastructure surrounded by breathtaking view allows the performers and trainees to produce one of the most innovative and attractive show for audiences that is complemented by their growing demand and sold out shows.
The production initially developed ground in southern Kyushu area and performed in only Kyushu region. After their goal of a million ticket sales was achieved, TAO started to develop and conceive the idea of expanding their horizon. The creators believed that they needed a strong foundation and base before actually opening up their performances to the world. This mind-set allowed TAO to become a top-notch global entertainment production resulting in millions of fans. TAO took the task to transform the old image of Japanese drum playing into a unique and modern form of entertainment by mixing it with diverse elements and remodeling the whole performance and tradition.
With successful worldwide performances, TAO has managed to expand their shows and this year the production is planning to play seventy shows. The success of the show has allowed many talented composers and designers to join the group and widen the scope of possibilities for the production. Already featured in front of fifteen million people, the show aims to expand further at the international platform. The 2004 and 2005 Edinburgh Festival performance shook the biggest art festival of the world, where the event managed to attain the highest ticket sales amongst two thousand other group performances. That performance immediately brought the spotlight on TAO, and allowed the production to gain global exposure and promotions. Since then the production has toured all around the world including destinations such as Switzerland, Germany, Taipei, Australia as well as US.
The sharp precision and perfect accuracy of the performers is not a fling but comes through an immensely tough training and years of practice. The performers go through rigorous period of training before they perform live. Initially the regime and training was so tough that almost four hundred trainees quit the program over a period of ten years. However, the founder "Ikuo Fujitaka," changed the training session that decreased the drop out ratio. Acquiring TAO tickets will allow the audience to see various heart thumping performances along with musical instruments to add to a unique and memorable experience.
