They will have toured in every continents except Antarctica within their tries to spread globe tranquility via the messenger of music. Amongst their projects, apart from straightforward taiko shows, are a cooperation with modern synthesizer genius Isao Tomita for Nasca Illusion, instructing the über-eclectic Cirque du Soleil in taiko because of their own shows, the soundtrack for The Hunted, along with a annual “Earth Special event” celebration on Sado for percussionists from all over the world to go to.
