OEDO SUKEROKU TAIKO (Naname Dai, Bondaiko)


Summer in Japan cannot be complete without a Bon-odori-festival. In 1956, Seido Kobayashi, born in Hongo, the Tokyo downtown area, first played Bon-taiko drums at the age of 12. He won the first prize at the first Bon-taiko contest held at Yushima Tenjin Shrine. Later, he and the contest winners got together atthe request of Minoru Sanada, a choreographer, who was aiming at creating a new music group using a Japanese traditional instrument, wa-taiko. Studying under Sasazoh Kineya, they trained and built up their skills, then formed '"Shin-On Taiko", which was the new style to transform Kabuki music into taiko performances. They were also the members of Bon taiko group "Oedo Sukeroku Kai", lead by Seidoh Kobayashi. Later the four young members Seido Kobayashi, Yoshihisa Ishikura, Yutaka Ishizuka and Motoe Onozato, started their career as the first taiko ensemble in Tokyo using only taiko. It was "Sukeroku Taiko"(1967).

To honor the Yushima Tenjin
Shrine and to preserve the tradition, they dedicated the group to the shrine. Since the establishment of the group, the sukeroku-style has spread throughout Japan and overseas and has gained favorable reputations.
To enhance their activities and s
how wa-taiko music as a stage performing art, Kobayashi left Sukeroku Taiko and established "Oedo Sukeroku Taiko".

The music created by Oedo Sukeroku Taiko is a chic and cheerful ensemble, representing symbols of Edokko. 'Sukeroku' is the chivalrous main character of the theatre piece which typifies the splendor of Edokko. It's only natural that the very first drum music born in Edo (Tokyo) bear the name Sukeroku . Sukeroku style which is characterized by dynamic, sharp and acrobatic movements created with the whole body, and visually beautiful, stylish and elegant postures.
Oedo Sukeroku Taiko's stage is the total combination of art, sports and music.
Based on Bon taiko techniques and Kabuki music essenc
e the group is far different from any others. They have succeeded to sublimate wa-taiko music from local folk art to a stage performing art. They move vigorously all over the world gaining favorable reputations.
