K2 Enterprise presents “Ken Koshio TAIKO EXTRAVAGANZA 2021 – Flower of LIfe” taking place at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts for the 6th annual show in Arizona.
Our past shows have been a huge success, reaching many local people through the message of Koshio’s Life Beats. At our most recent show, we received many comments from our audience that they felt a deep connection between the soul and energy produced throughout this masterpiece of performing art.
The theme of this year’s show is “Flower of Life”. It is one of the basic sacred geometry shapes and it symbolizes the cycle of creation and reminds us of the unity of everything: we’re all built from the same origin.
Our desire is to express the art of drum beats and the roots of our indigenous spirit are intertwined to celebrate and experience the colorful diversity of cultures and generations and to remember our life and consciousness arise from one source.
Taiko in Japanese means “drumming beats” (太鼓) and “ancient time” (太古). Since ancient times, Taiko has connected our ancestral expression from the past to the future.
Ken Koshio’s passion is to share the most rewarding experience possible and express the importance of our origin. This amazing collaboration of diverse cultures and different styles of artistic expressions will be brought to the stage in tune with the rhythms of nature within our Grand Canyon State of Arizona as the “womb” (胎内) of the earth.
This show will feature a variety of expressions, dynamics of fusion beats, music, dance, and vibrations for all generations!
