Chocho – The Butterfly

Already well-known to Collingwood audiences but with a unique twist. Presenting the ‘Butterfly’ with Aki Takahashi on taiko and shamisen together with the unbridled energy of the celebrated Japanese drummers Nagata Shachu.

In ancient Japan, boundaries were set by the sound of taiko drums: the point at which you could no longer hear a village’s drums marked its outer borders. Today, the joyous drumming of Nagata Shachu’s taiko erases boundaries and barriers, bringing together people from all nationalities.

This concert will also feature the projection of a a plein air painting session with local artist Shandelle McCurdie, during the song ‘Tenkai’, which means ‘Heaven’ or ‘to evolve or unfold.’


  • Shin Kodama (New Echoes), composed by Kiyoshi Nagata.
  • Hitori Uchi (One person, one drum), composed by Aki Takahashi
