japanese drummers

Ask Katy

Hello Katy! I have 2 questions for Roger. Roger, as a drummer have you ever listened to some Japanese drum music? They have plenty of drums in Japanese traditional music, I was very impressed by them when I visted Japan years ago and (question two) do you know a band called Les Tamboures du Bronx? They don't play standard drums but big oil barrels - their performances are terrific! Thank you. Vesna

"Yes I went to see the Kodo drummers of Japan perform in London a few years back and they were truly amazing! Les Tamboures are not familiar to me but they sound really Interesting I'll look out for their music. Roger "
