- Escape beyond Hokkaido. "Ondekoza," demon drummers of
Japan, are at Centennial Hall tonight. In the remote northern islands
of Japan, the 17-member company of "demon drummers" practice
the demanding communal athletic rituals that allow them to master their
700-pound taiko (big drum) instruments. Hollowed from the trunks of keyaki
trees, their drumming is entwined with their Shinto spiritual beliefs and
their intense physicality, a commitment that earned them a Guinness world
record for a three-year, 13,000-mile tour of America - on foot. Show starts
at 7:30 p.m. Tickets from $15.
