Rotations Concert Album

R O T A T I O N S celebrates the long and sometimes cyclical path we’ve taken in our taiko travels. As we rehearse, create and collaborate, we revisit moments of learning, each time with a greater understanding.

About ROTATIONS

In October 2015, Ho Etsu presented ROTATIONS as a live concert together with On Ensemble. These live recordings were made during that event. We proudly share them now to remind everyone of the cycles we make as we live and grow. If you would like to purchase ROTATIONS, simply click the album cover.
