THE Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers will be officially launching their latest CD and DVD with an intimate performance in Glasgow.

The event, held at The Lighthouse, will see the drummers, based at the Mugen Taiko Dojo on the outskirts of Blackwood, give a short performance from the Eternal Return CD and the Document Live DVD.

Eternal Return features performances from Mugenkyo’s 2012 Japan tour including the Extasia Festival, where Mugenkyo were the first European group to be invited to perform at the prestigious event.

The CD also features special guest master drummer Masaaki Kurumaya Sensei, who appears on a commercial recording for the very first time.

The Document Live DVD features concert footage from the 2012 autumn concert tour of the UK, with special guest flautist from New York Nobuko Miyazaki.

In addition to three concert tours of the UK, in 2013 Mugenkyo will be performing a full run at one of the major venues of the Edinburgh Fringe: the Assembly George Square Theatre.
