In its forty-plus year history, Ondekoza has been influential in spreading and
popularizing taiko, particularly outside of Japan. Many of pieces arranged by
Ondekoza have been incorporated into the repertoire of taiko groups around the
Ondekoza continually pursues greater means of expression through the use of
taiko drums. By trimming the performance of all that is excessive, and playing
to the limit of physical capabilities, Ondekoza believes that the sound of the
drum alone is capable of striking a powerful impression. Ondekoza aims to create
stage pieces that are enjoyable to children and adults alike.
Before each show, individual shime drums are tightened to the limit- a task
requiring the synchronized strength of two members- in order to achieve the
cutting sound that is representative of Ondekoza's style.
Utsu-Hachijo: War Drums from the Island of Hachijo:
400 years ago, after falling in the Battle of Sekigahara, Ukita Hideie was
washed ashore on the island of Hachijo. Unable to escape, he was forced to spend
his remaining life on the island. Replacing his swords with 'bachi', he is said
to have drummed and sang to express his longing for his home.
Ancient islanders of southern Japan, set sail towards the north in search of a
rumored Utopia. Drums were played on these boats in order to ease the fear of
the rowers, who were constantly threatened by deadly storms and waves. This beat
is said to be the origin of Yatai-Bayashi.
