TENKO & Other Groups

和太鼓

和太鼓グループ「天鼓 -TENKO-」は、家族ユニットとしてシンガポールで発足しました。その後、太鼓のリズムに魅せられたメンバーが加わり、活動の場を広げていきました。メンバーの国籍や年齢は様々ですが、一緒に和太鼓のリズムを楽しんでいます。

様々な地域に伝わるお祭りなどの「伝承曲」から「創作曲」、そして太鼓のみの曲だけでなく、チャンチきや篠笛、三味線など様々な楽器も加わった曲も演奏しています。和太鼓だけでなく、「獅子舞」「おかめ」「ひょっとこ」などの神楽やお囃子も紹介しています。

「アジア・チルドレン・フェスティバル(国立図書館)」や「Heritage Festival(National Heritage Board)」などの文化的なイベントで「日本の伝統文化としての和太鼓」を紹介するだけでなく、様々なイベントのオープニングでの演奏などもしています。そして、「和太鼓の演奏は耳で聴くだけでなく、体を全身で楽しむ!」を合言葉に、演奏活動だけでなく、学校などでワークショップを行い、和太鼓ファンを増やす活動にも力を入れています。
