Ritual combat with drums

Claire and I just got back from a Drum Tao concert.

Amazing! Perhaps the most remarkable display of pin-sharp controlled agression I've seen.
I cannot adequately describe the disciplined energy these performers throw into their playing. They wallop these massive big-arsed drums with full force and perfect timing.

At one point they came out with these drumsticks - and I'm not exagerating - they were bigger than baseball bats, and proceeded to clobber the bejeebers out of a drum the size of a small barn.

Huge fun. I am confirmed fan of Japanese taiko drums.
