Vibes and sparks when drummers of Hong Kong and Taiwan meet

 

The Chio-Tian Folk Drums & Arts Troupe of Taiwan has turned the traditional Taiwanese folk drum parade into a performing art that has won popular acclaim on the international front.  They were the story behind the 2012 box office hit, Din Tao: Leader of the Parade.  The group has successfully blended Taiwan folk culture, myths, drum entertainment and the parades of ritual icons in temple fairs to become a hybrid form of performing art.  Also on the concert programme will be Rong Chenchu, champion of the 2012 Hong Kong Synergy 24 Drum Competition, who will be joining Gao Shan, the percussion virtuoso of the HKCO in a high-calibre performance of The Sun, the first movement of Kuan Nai-chung’s percussion concerto, The Age of the Dragon.  Be ready for an enticing, heart-throbbing concert experience!
