Created in February of 2010 and began touring by Tokara in 2013, "Tenchi Shinmei" (The gods of heaven and earth) was inspired by the late Grandmaster Daihachi Oguchi. This concert was performed by Wadaiko Ensemble Tokara throughout 12 countries in Asia, Europe and North America, including 41 concerts at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This video is the studio recording by National TV-4 at the Iida Culture Theater.
"Calling upon the purest of Shinto ideas, that within all things in the universe, both animate and inanimate, resides the essence of the spark of life of all humanity. The constant beating of the drums in our hearts are revitalized by the jazzy and enthusiastic rhythms that we play. Both the taiko drum and the drum of our hearts are forged together in eternal joy."
