New Taiko Music History Article – Oroshi Daiko/Shiraume Daiko/Matsuri Daiko

The next article in the TaikoSource Music History series has been published! Check out our exploration of a suite of pieces composed by Sukeroku Taiko members in the early days of the group’s existence: Oroshi Daiko, Shiraume Daiko, and Matsuri Daiko.

In the article, we examine the use of theatrical and festival musical motifs and techniques within the three works, showing how the Sukeroku style was moved beyond its bon daiko origins to reach a new stage of compositional and technical complexity.
