The World Taiko Conference is an event that brings together taiko enthusiasts from around the world for the purpose of promoting and developing taiko. Last year, the first WTC 2020 was held online.

 

This year, in anticipation of the next World Taiko Conference, we held a performance titled "Taiko Celebration 2021" in Kyushu, where there are many taiko lovers in Japan.

 

The up-and-coming Japanese instrumentalists of Wagraku Soden performed for the first time as a percussion ensemble in Kyushu.

In addition, the HERbeat project, which consists of female taiko drummers, performed as "HERbeat Japan. And from Oita, which was the host city of the festival, we had Toyonokuni Yufuin Genryu Taiko, a group with many devoted fans throughout Japan. With the three performing groups, all of whom have been gathering attention in the taiko world, World Taiko Conference Presents "Taiko Celebration 2021" from Japan to the world.

PERFORMERS

Waraku Soden    Taiko Ensamble

Waraku Soden is a music project of up-and-coming Japanese instrumentalists led by Shogo Yoshii, Taishi Yamabe, and Tsuyoshi Maeda. Their unique world of music that blends and develops Japanese music has been highly acclaimed both in Japan and abroad. The ensemble uses a variety of Japanese instruments, combining with folk and traditional songs from across Japan, creating a unique world. In a literal sense, “Waraku Soden” means “passing on the Japanese music through performance.”  They convey the concepts and notions behind the performing arts as they have been passed on as a part of local life culture.  “Waraku” also means “music of harmony.”  The artistic director, Shogo Yoshii, aims to present the stage not as a mere collection of different instruments, but as a music ensemble with his original compositions. In this performance, Waraku Soden will perform with a special collection of musicians.

HERbeat Japan

~HERbeat OURbeat~

When the world was born,

The long years of humankind were woven together.

When the world turn dark of natural disasters,

The drum resounds, the voices are raised, we breathe in life, and we step to dance, 

As the warriors of the rainbow give thanks and pray to Mother Earth.

 Resounding to our future, ONEbeat 

 

The voices and stories of women have rarely been discussed within our history of taiko. But nowadays, it is said that more than half of the world’s taiko drumming population is said to be female.

To celebrate the achievements of female taiko drummers, an innovative concert and project called HERbeat was put together by Jennifer Weir in Minnesota, and was performed by some of the most acclaimed female taiko artists from Japan, U.S., and Canada in February 2020. 

This year, the Japanese cast of HERbeat has reunited as a special ensemble for the WTC concert.

Chieko Kojima (Kodo Taiko Performing Arts Ensemble) / Taiko and Dance

Chieko Kojima first encountered Japanese folk dancing when she moved to Sado to join Sado no Kuni Ondekoza in 1976. She went on to become one of Kodo’s founding members in 1981. In addition to her work with Kodo, she also has an active solo career that includes projects such as “Yukiai,” where she seeks out new encounters and collaborations with artists and taiko groups within Japan and throughout the world. Kojima is known for her original dancing style during Kodo’s taiko-based performances, which is best exemplified by her vivid portrayal of the goddess Ameno-uzume in the first season of “Amaterasu'' in 2006. She became a Kodo Distinguished Member in 2012, and was the director of the annual concert series “Kodo Special Performances on Sado Island '' for four years, starting from its inaugural season that same year. She continues to ambitiously broaden her expressive outlets, as demonstrated by her recent productions based on the “Tales of Dojoji,” which then became the inspiration for her first photo book, ” Kasane no Kiyohime Monogatari: The Myriad Layers of Kiyohime,” a unique work created with photographer Maiko Miyagawa and released in 2015.
In recent years, she has been holding workshops on dances rooted in Japanese culture, which she has cultivated over many years, and on the theme of her signature performance "Hana Hachijo," focusing on the flexible taiko expression that only a woman can give.
In 2019, she performed in "Kodo: Sen no Mai" in commemoration of her 40th anniversary, and has released a DVD of this once-in-a-lifetime performance.

She has also had concerts in EU, Latin America, Australia, and other countries, and performed at cross-genre concerts (such as Rock, Jazz, and Reggae) including WOMAD in UK, SZIGET in Hungary, Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, BOOM Festival in Portugal. 
In the meantime, she also established the TAWOO taiko dojo, holding classes and workshops at various events including at schools from kindergartens and universities. She opened sister Dojos in Hokkaido, Yokohama, Chiba, Ise, Nagano, Homburg, Shanghai, and Brazil, and has taught taiko both domestically and internationally. She has participated in the Third European Taiko Conference that took place in Hamburg,  UK Taiko Festival in 2019, and the kaDON taiko retreat the same year. In 2020, she was invited as a performing artist to join the HERbeat concert to celebrate female performers, sharing her spirit and style to a global audience.

里アンナ アー写.tiff

Anna Sato / Amami singer

Anna Sato, whose rich voice evokes the spirits of her native Amami Island, has won many shima uta (island song) contests. She has released seven recordings, receiving international acclaim for her powerful voice and distinctive singing techniques. Today, Anna’s home island of Amami is officially part of Japan, but the archipelago still has its own dialects and cultural traditions that are distinctively different to those of the mainland.
Anna began learning shima uta from her grandfather, Sumio Megumi, from age three. She has been singing ever since, and in (year) she moved to Tokyo to pursue a career in music. In 2016, she performed in concerts around the world, from New York City to Corsica, France. She also caught the eye of renowned choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and participated in his dance production ICON as an arranger and live singer. As a result, Anna has earned innumerable fans worldwide and many more international projects were on the horizon for her. Anna’s mastery of shima uta makes her an important cultural asset both in Amami and for all of Japan. With a deep understanding of tradition and flair for innovation, she at once preserves the rich tradition of shima uta while elevating it to a contemporary art form.

From 2012 to 2015, she was the chief director of the Shidara national tour, “Ao no Daichi”, and performed as "Kaze-oni-gami". After the final performance of "Ao no Daichi," she left the troupe and became a freelance performing artist. She updated her name from Chabo to Awa, and since April 2015, she has been based in the village of Urugi in Nagano Prefecture, where she has been working on her creative work, following her long-time dream: "Handing down to the children in a thousand years is the treasure of nature”. She has released her first album "Tsuki - Silver Moon, Blue Wind”, and her second album "Iwakusa - Memories from Ancient Times”, while expanding her performance sites widely.

Get excited for the panelist line up because this can only happen at WTC! ✍TOPIC 1 [Taiko as a Performing Art] Taiko as an Expression on Stage: Its Development and Future Roughly half a century since the creation of the form of taiko known as "kumi-daiko," it has become common for performances to take place in theater halls for an admission fee; however, it is rare for these expressions to be critiqued in the same manner as other performing arts, such as classical music, ballet, kabuki, and Noh, and it would be difficult to say that taiko is regarded in similar esteem as a genre of performing arts. In this Premium Talk, we discuss the development of taiko as a performing art along with the possibilities and challenges of further development. The panelists below will be discussing and expanding on topics and content shared through the WTC Premium Talks! Panelists: - Chieko Kojima(Niigata Prefecture/ Taiko Performing Arts Ensemble Kodo) - Kenny Endo (U.S.A./Kenny Endo Taiko Ensemble) - Taishi Yamabe (Tokyo Prefecture/ Solo Artist) - Kaoly Asano (Tokyo Prefecture/ Gocoo) Facilitator: - Yoshihiko Miyamoto (Tokyo Prefecture / Miyamoto Unosuke Shoten) Check out their profiles here! https://en.wtctokyo.com/livetalks If you haven’t seen the Premium Talks yet, be sure to check them out here! ➞https://en.wtctokyo.com/premiumtalkvideos ============== WTC (World Taiko Conference -世界太鼓大会-)とは? 2020年に東京で行われるWTCは、太鼓の素晴らしさを広く世界に発信し、太鼓を通じてあらゆる人々を繋げるイベントです。 https://www.wtctokyo.com What is WTC (World Taiko Conference)?

[WTC SONGS] 「打てや囃せや」/“Uteya-Hayaseya” (日本・Japan)

WTC楽曲投稿・WTC Taiko Composition Library ーーーーー kaDON x Hibikus から前田剛史さん作曲の「打てや囃せや」を共有します! この楽曲はシャッフル(ハネのリズム)をベースにした楽曲です。 今回の動画でご紹介する楽器構成は ・長胴太鼓パート ・桶太鼓、締太鼓のセットです。 テンポの速い細かいリズムはあまり出てきませんが、大間のリズムパターンの中に、体の動きやバチのフリを入れてみました。 太鼓は『リズム』が勿論大切な要素ですが、『身体性』ももう一つの大切な要素だと思っています。 気持ち(心)を動かし、それが動作に繋がる。 太鼓は単に音楽としての成り立ちだけでは無く、そこには人々の『願い』や『祈り』、何かを想う『心』が詰まっていると思っています。 皆さんが日々の生活の中で実際に感じた『喜び』の気持ちや、大切な人に声をかける時の様な『優しい』気持ちや、時には『怒り』『悲しみ』の様な気持ちもあるかもしれません。 そんなリアルな自分の心を沢山動かし、それが体の動きになり音に変わる。 そんなアプローチをこの楽曲の中で沢山して頂ければと思っています。 この動画の動きやバチのフリは、あくまで一つのパターンだと思って頂き、『こんな風に動きたい!』とう気持ちが出て来たら自由に楽しんでアレンジして行って頂けたら幸いです。 「打てや囃せや」という名前を付けたのは 譜面や動画で私がお伝えしている決まり事にあまり囚われすぎずに、アレンジも含めて自由に気持ちの赴くままに楽しんでこの曲を叩いて欲しいという思いでこの曲名にしました。 「囃す」という言葉は”己”に向けてではなく”他”に向けて力を発信する表現だと私は感じています。 何かの対象に対して「囃し立てる」 目の前で一緒に叩いている仲間へ向けてなのか、 演奏を観ているお客さんなのか、はたまたもっと大きく自然や地球に対してなのか。 自分の思いや願いを届けたい対象に向けて伝える。 「気持ち」から「音」が産まれて来るような太鼓になれば素敵だなぁと日々感じています。 この楽曲に限らずだとは思いますが、太鼓を叩く時の一つのコンセプトだと思 って楽しく叩いて頂けたらと思います。 作曲者 : 前田剛史 Congratulations for the WTC! We are sharing “Uteya-Hayaseya” by Tsuyoshi Maeda from kaDON x Hibikus course. “Uteya-Hayaseya” is a composition by Tsuyoshi Maeda based on the lively syncopated rhythm. In this course, Tsuyoshi will teach you the piece focusing on two of the parts: Nagado and the Okedo/Shime set parts. Please refer to the Full Score to challenge yourself to learn the other parts.The parts he teaches do not have too many fast, intricate rhythms, but has many spacious “ma” built in where Tsuyoshi features big body movements and arm swings. “Rhythm” is of course an important aspect of taiko, but “physicality” is also as important. Moving emotions lead to movements. Tsuyoshi believes that taiko is not just a musical form, but also packed with peoples wishes and prayers, as well as love for someone or something that they hold dear. In our daily lives, we may feel or experience joy and affection, and at times, anger or sadness. These real emotions within you move your heart and become physical movement and finally turn into sounds. Through this piece, Tsuyoshi hopes you can experiment with such an approach to taiko.Think of the movements and bachi swinging presented in this course as one option amongst many possibilities. If your heart takes you to move differently, that’s totally OK! Feel free to make your own arrangements and enjoy! Tsuyoshi decided on the title “Uteya-Hayaseya” because he wanted this piece to be played and enjoyed without the need to strictly follow the score. ”Hayasu” is a Japanese term for “to cheer” Therefore, the piece is meant to be directed outwards such as your taiko friends that are playing with you, the audience, or it could even be directed towards something bigger, like nature and earth. To convey your feelings in the sound you create for that someone or something, is a concept that Tsuyoshi explores and cherishes. If you want to learn further, you can watch the full lesson on kaDON or you can contact kaDON for direct teaching from Tsuyoshi (limited to Japan for the time being).
