Performance: Fubuki Daiko, "Blizzard"

In ancient Japan, Taiko drums were used to frighten invaders,
inspire troops in battle, and call the gods. For the past 18 years, Fubuki
Daiko has catapulted Japanese Taiko drumming into the 21st century with an
eclectic experience that is part martial arts athleticism, part dance, and
all rhythm. Winnipeg-based Fubuki Daiko (foo-boo-key die-ko) reinvents
traditional Japanese drumming. They have performed at concert halls and
festivals across North America, and their University of Puget Sound date
is their exclusive West Coast stop. Their self -titled CD received a Prairie
Music Award for Outstanding Instrumental Recording, and their follow up
CD, Zanshin, received a Western Canadian Music Award Nomination.
