Well Folks, it's been a long time coming, but here at last is Episode 5 of the Global Drum Network podcast. This time we're taking a long, hard look at the visceral, epic percussive art that is TAIKO DRUMMING, as practised by the mighty MUGENKYO TAIKO DRUMMERS. They're Europe's only touring Taiko ensemble, and they're thunderously good. In Bob's exclusive interview, Mugenkyo's founder NEIL MACKIE gives us the lowdown on all things Taiko, the group itself and he takes us on a walk-through of the individual instruments ontsage prior to curtain-up. Coming up next month is DON POWELL of glam rock giants SLADE ( and it's not even CHRISTMAAAASSS!! ). Get your platform boots on for that one!
