Taiko Meantime was founded in Greenwich in 2001 with generous support from the Japan2001 festival. Performances of note include a project with Hana-Yui (of Kodo) in 2004 and appearances on both BBC (Family Prom in the Park 2005) and Channel 4 (How Music Works 2006). Taiko Meantime returned to Japan in 2010 to perform concerts in Wakayama. They performed for high-profile events at both the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, and featured in much of the press and media coverage for those events in the iconic setting of London's Leadenhall Market.
Five years after their last sell-out spectacular, Taiko Meantime finally return to the stage of Greenwich Theatre. Taiko Meantime strike at the heart of Taiko drumming's magic: an enthralling show combining traditional Japanese rhythms and techniques with eclectic, original compositions, enticing the audience to follow them on a musical journey.
