On Ensemble performs at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo’s Performing Arts Center on November 17, 2012

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo’s Performing Arts Center features a remix of a cultural stronghold by the group On Ensemble on Saturday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m.

With Japanese drums at the foundation of its world fusion mix, On Ensemble takes the ancient instruments of taiko into new realms. Infusing the powerful rhythms of ensemble Japanese drumming with elements of hip-hop, rock and electronica, their unique sound has been praised as “completely original and brilliantly conceived.”

Modern Drummer magazine calls On Ensemble “an exciting taiko ensemble looking at new ways to apply traditional Japanese drums.”
