The History of Drum TAO
TAO was formed in Aichi, Japan, in 1993 They moved their base to "Aso-Kuju National Park" in Oita in 1995, seeking better environment for new creations. TAO's home base "Grandioso" was established on the 40,000 square meters of land surrounded by beautiful nature.

TAO created the perfect environment for its music creation with three different rehearsal halls. TAO has been producing unique music and styles as well as its artists here in Grandioso.

TAO decided to first lay their roots in the southern Kyushu region and focused on performances in Kyushu only until they achieved one million ticket sales in order to establish never conceived world of TAO.

Their originality as a core idea of TAO had to be well established to be recognized as "an world class entertainment."

TAO attained its original goal of million tickets sales in seven and a half years. They subsequently took their shows to the world.

TAO seeks to change and shake off the general image of classic Japanese drumming culture in Japan. 

Since the achievement 10 years ago, TAO has been seen more than 5 million spectators in 17 countries and 400 cities. Their success in the world gathered talented creators around the world, which broaden the infinite possibility of TAO. Japan tour has been kicked off since 2009 starting with the 15 shows presented by Fuji TV group.

The number of performances had been expanded within a year and TAO will perform 70 shows this year.
