Oh, East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet.

Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God's great Judgement Seat;

But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Bread, nor Birth, 

When two strong men stand face to face, though they come from the ends of the earth!

Here not two, but seven great musicians from the ends of the earth meet! In mutual respect and joy they exchange their common passion for Japanese music; the powerful sound of the taiko drum, the deep sound of the shakuhachi flute and the fragile tune of the shinobue flute.  The mixture of their unique styles and backgrounds create an energetic blend of percussion and jazz fusion feeling.  

This intercultural project already had a big success in Antwerp and Paris during autumn, 2016.
