" In its choreography and its vigor, Taiko becomes almost a martial art, one in which violence has been sublimated into disciplined exultation in a blend of high-decibel virtuosity and sinful shakuhachi solos. Precision and energy are paramount here and the product, for me, was medicinal. "

Bernard Holland, NY Times

" These drummers were clearly enduring some metaphysical test, but less grueling in the program, Marco Lienhard’s deeply fanciful solos on the shakuhachi looked fully invested and with more than just energy. It is the layering of drum patterns and sonorities in intricate compositions that represent the key to the experience. "

Los Angeles Times

" The members gave their bodies over to musical performance, at times a very physical and musical performance - the highly appreciative audience was treated to physical dexterity, lovely and magical flute music. "
