I've heard and read that the style is also called Kodo. I'm wondering if the girls are real drummers or acting for the commercial. They're certainly better looking than the male groups. Anybody else out there know anything else about them?> If you find out, please let me know. I've been doing some research, but came up short. The style of drumming is called Taiko. It's from Japan. From what I've seen, there are more taiko drum groups out there than you can count. There's even a taiko conference in Great Britain some time later this year. I'll keep digging.
