Taiko Group

Cola BONNAN

Founded in May 2011 by Ayuko YONEMURA and Cola BONNAN, Tsunagari Taiko performs in France and abroad.

The group’s purpose is to convey the most happiness and energy possible in order to enrich the audience’s hearts.

In order to do that, members of the group work on many details - from their technique, to the musicality of the songs, as well as on their inner management skills to experience the greatest energy of enjoyment.

The Tsunagari Taiko group gathers the founders (Ayuko and Cola) and also a selection of qualified and trained students. Before performing on stage, they have developed inner management qualities, techniques, and energies enabling them to provide a quality show.
All the members constantly work on improving their skills and behaviors.

The show Hajimari

Invite your audience to our show HAJIMARI (commencement), a journey toward the origins of joy and life in Japanese culture.

Reviews from our public
« I was moved to the heart »
« I felt vitality, and joy of being together »
« It is at the same time profound, dynamic, and light... What a pleasure! »
« A beautiful trip that is hard to forget »

With a duration that balances from 1h10 to 1h30 beside interlude, this creation will make you fall into Japanese mythology, from the origins of life, celebration, and joy, with Amaterasu, the Sun Goddess.
Hajimari is using Taiko, traditional Japanese drums with powerful and rich sounds, Awa Odori, a traditional street dance, light and vivifying, the Shinobue, a Japanese bamboo flute, and most importantly a lot of life and sharing with the audience.

This creation is vibrant on stage, ideally in a theater (50 to +1000 ), and is accompanied with a light effect assistant.
During the organisation, we will provide you with a technical sheet and our scene plan.
