Bonten - Ageha (2010)
The origin of the Japanese traditional percussion instrument, Wadaiko, goes back to the Jomon period, when it was used as a means of distant communication. Even today, it plays an essential role in stage performances such as Kabuki, Noh, and Shinto rituals such as festivals, Kagura (sacred music and dancing performed at shrines), and prayers. It is a very familiar percussion instrument to the Japanese people.
Bonten, the coed Wadaiko Team, strives to open new doors for this instrument, exploring free and new original styles, adding the melody of Shinobue (Japanese flute) to the rhythm of the Wadaiko.
The soul, to beat the drum without any desire, just selflessly, is the root of the Japanese spirit.
We sincerely hope you enjoy the present tense BONTEN, as they are ever changing, moving up to the top.
