Ondekoza (鬼太鼓座) ("demon drum group"), sometimes referred to as "Za Ondekoza", is a Japanese troupe specializing in taiko drumming. Founded in 1969 by Den Tagayasu, in Sado Island, Japan. Ondekoza was influential in the rise of the kumi-daiko (group taiko) style of taiko. Not a taiko player himself, Tagayasu helped transform taiko from a festival-based music form to a virtuosic performance art performed on stage
Zaondekoza (LP, Album, Promo).
The Ondekoza, once seen, can never be forgotten. The male members strip down to breech clouts and ceremonial head bands. Then they begin a ceaseless, athletic pounding on traditional Japanese drums up to five feet in diameter.
