Kurofune no Date Taiko

Kurofune no Date Taiko is a traditional drumming group from Ogatsu town, Ishinomaki.

Richard documented many of their rehearsals and performances in 2012 with a series of short video and in 2013 will again be involved in documenting the group’s performance and their history.

2013 will see the 400th year anniversary of the ship built by Lord Date which the Taiko is named after. A performance is in the planning, more information updated as it becomes available.
