Creator and Director Yako Miyamoto has starred in the Off-Broadway hit STOMP for the past six years and is the lead performer in the Peggy Spina Tap Company. She began her Taiko drum studies in Tokyo at the age of eight. In 2000, she created COBU, which is translated as "Dance like Drumming, Drum like Dancing", to pay homage to her Japanese heritage and the soul and beats of her new home, New York City. Pairing traditional Japanese Taiko drums with African djembe drums and American funk tap dance allowed Ms. Miyamoto to bring two cultures together in an amazing whirlwind of excitement, joy and harmony.
No knowledge of Japanese or English is necessary to enjoy the experience! For all ages.
