> Can anyone tell me if the Asian girls dressed in red, pounding the drums in the Mitsubishi commercial are a real act? If so, what is their name?
They're apparently part of a UCLA group called TAIKOPROJECT and are the female section of a drumming ensemble called Kitsune Taiko (made up of 7 guys and 7 gals).
Taiko drumming is a really exciting artform but really has to be *seen* to be appreciated. CDs just don't do it justice.
