After nine years of performing in Auckland, Haere Mai Taiko present their first solo concert. This is the best ever opportunity to see and hear their dynamic and energetic performance, consisting of new songs, some never before played in New Zealand, as well as powerful traditional songs. Many of the new songs were taught to them personally by two of Japan's most celebrated taiko composers, Hisashi Kitahara and Michiko Nakamori, who have visited them regularly over the last two years.

Modern taiko drumming is a fusion of centuries-old temple rhythms with '50s jazz, bound together by a thoroughly Japanese essence. It was revived in 1951 by Daihachi Oguchi, a Japanese jazz drummer, who discovered some forgotten manuscripts and rearranged them for a group performance, eventually creating a new genre and a wave of popularity both in Japan and throughout the world.
