Mugen Taiko..... exploring the limitless possibilities of the taiko drum
"Mugen" means limitless and "Mugenkyo" means limitless reverberation, expressing our belief that Taiko has no limitations, no musical or geographical boundaries; the reverberations of Taiko spread throughout the world. Mugenkyo's aim is to develop taiko drumming as a contemporary European performing art, both in its pure form, and in collaboration with other artists & disciplines.
