Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers are the UK’s first and only professional touring taiko group, and Europe’s most established and successful performing company. Through performing over 100 concerts a year, the group have built a solid reputation for their hard-hitting and energetic performances since their establishment in 1994.

They bring their unique show to the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall this October and audiences can look forward to a night of thundering rhythms on huge taiko drums, mysterious masked choreography with inventive lighting, muscular synchronisation timed to perfection, post-apocalyptic martial imagery & infectious belly laugh humour – all in a spellbinding display of sheer athleticism. 

Mugenkyo have developed a spectacular passionate style with music for the soul, fusing the traditional spirit with a contemporary look and sound, creating a modern stage performance that has captivated audiences everywhere.

Festival highlights over the years have included appearances at: Glastonbury Festival, the Rhythm Sticks Festival, Phoenix Rock Festival, and the Marlborough & Cork Jazz Festivals. Mugenkyo have also performed at numerous large-scale multimedia events at venues such as London ExCeL & O2 Arena, Birmingham NEC & Manchester GMEX.
