The stars of TAO live, study and train at a compound in the mountains of Japan. They return to Bend to showcase their diverse backgrounds as rock musicians, gymnasts and composers in an explosive show for all ages.

With performers the Chicago Tribune describe as having “extraordinary talent and incomparable muscular zeal,” TAO’s precision, energy, and stamina offer a vibrant take on the traditional art of Japanese drumming, creating a spectacular night of entertainment.
