Sounds of Taiko Warming the Bega Valley

The earthy sound of drumming pulsed through the Bega Valley over the June long weekend as local group
Stonewave Taiko again joined with internationally acclaimed taiko duo YuNiOn for a three day winter intensive.

This follows on from their collaboration at the National Folk Festival over Easter. The performances at the National were played to a full house in the famous Budawang Auditorium and were a highlight for many across the Easter weekend as well as being an incredible experience for the players.

“ There must be something very special about the BegaValley. We love working with such a dedicated group of players… who are constantly challenging and improving their technique and skills” said Graham Hilgendorf of YuNiOn.

Anyone who attended the ‘Thunder and Waves’ Concert at the Bega Valley Commemorative Centre (BVCC) last November, will appreciate the power and energy that Stonewave Taiko and YuNiOn bring to the stage.

The winter intensive , held at the Sapphire Coast Anglican College, has been the starting ground for the group to learn new rhythm, dance and song material for the next planned concert, to be held in the Bega Valley Commemorative Centre (BVCC) on Saturday 11 November 2017.
