Join the celebration of Mugenkyo’s landmark 30th anniversary with a very special show of big beats, visual treats and vital energy.

Taking the audience on a journey “in time”, a thrilling ride through their 30 years, the concert is a full theatrical experience, with dynamic choreography and heart-pounding rhythms contrasting with atmospheric soundscapes.

As Europe’s longest-established taiko group, Mugenkyo are widely recognised as the ground-breaking pioneers of this exciting art form, thrilling audiences at thousands of performances worldwide, now returning with their first major UK tour in almost five years.

In the meantime, Mugenkyo have been busy on projects such as collaborating on the ambitious World of Gods with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, filming for the Hollywood film Tin Soldier in Greece with Jamie Foxx and Robert DeNiro, a two-week run at the World Expo in Dubai, the BBC TV Tokyo Olympics, a 26-date run at the Adelaide Fringe, the Fire & Light site-specific project, regular online workshops and performances, along with rebuilding their purpose-built residential studio.

In 2024 they return to the road with an electrifying and uplifting performance of skill, stamina and soul, just “in time” for their 30th special Birthday Bash! Don’t miss it!

‘This show is not one to be missed.’ ★★★★★ (Edinburgh Evening News)

‘Lightning-fast synchronisation and complex rhythms on huge barrel-sized instruments. Hypnotic and primal, the show is an entrancing display of physicality, precision and discipline.’ (The List)

‘Mugenkyo showcases its musical presentation in totally modern style, making the esoteric thoroughly pop… sustaining its appeal right to the climax, winning thunderous applause.’ (The Stage)

‘Unashamedly drumming as theatre, but also drumming as an almost religious experience… exhilarating to behold.’ (The Glasgow Herald)

Duration: approx. 2 hours 10 minutes (incl. interval)
