esterday Andrea and I attended a Fubuki Daiko concert at the Frog Follies festival in St. Pierre-Jolys. As a Ninjutsu practitioner Japanese drumming is of particular interest to me and Taiko is another one of those areas heavily influenced by the martial arts in Japanese culture. It was a real treat to see some of the techniques I've learned in the dojo put to a completely different use on stage where aggression and art came together in a powerful performance. It was a perfect blend of beauty and danger - just like Ninjutsu. Fubuki Daiko has a 20th anniversary concert coming up in October if you're interested (details on their website).
Enjoy the photos.
