Drumming in Japan is quite tradition , unlike our drumming the West with a gretsch new classic . Although , I do enjoy the traditional drumming in Japan, I much prefer the classic drumming we have in the West. Both are art form but the traditional Japanese drumming seems a lot more intense.
I’ve seen some Taiko drumming in Sado Island sometime last year and tourists flocked to this quiet island because of this cultural event held yearly. There is no lyrics to the drumming but it was definitely very enjoyable but if I had a choice I still prefer our Western drumming.
