GOCOO rocks again! The Tokyo Tribal Groove Orchestra GOCOO will be back on tour in Europe Summer 2013 and is also available for one-off shows all year, worldwide.
Here a few highlights of GOCOO’s 2012 Summer Tour: The band performed at MONTREUX JAZZ FESTIVAL, entranced more than 20.000 people at BOOM Festival and played again at Europe’s biggest music event, the SZIGET Festival. After performing in 2007 on SZIGET’s World Music Stage, GOCOO was this time booked to open the festival’s main stage. Usually reserved for international mainstream rock/pop acts, with GOCOO for the first time ever an instrumental world music artist rocked the main stage of the ”Best European Major Festival 2011 Award” winner. A true milestone in GOCOO’s career. The concert was broadcasted live and worldwide via YouTube (check the links below for live recordings).
Book now a band unlike all the rest and make a difference for your festival & audience!
are seven female and four male drummers from Tokyo who create a live music-spectacle beyond imagination when beating the hell out of a battery of about 40 traditional Japanese Taiko drums. GOCOO’s mighty beats, juicy grooves and unique poly-rhythms are of such primal nature that they reflect all known music styles and consequently unite people of all ages, ethnic and social roots and of any taste in music. No matter where GOCOO performs, at major World & Roots, Rock & Pop or alternative Music & Culture festivals, in live clubs, classic theatres and concert halls or at techno events, the band takes all audiences on a mesmerizing trip between trance and ecstasy – drumming down all borders between east and west, tradition and pop, rite and party. Although GOCOO’s music is often referred to as crossover or roots music, or even new terms such as Techno- and Trance-Taiko are created to pay tribute to their unique, cosmic goose-bumps rhythms, GOCOO successfully overcame any stereotyped concepts not only of traditional Japanese percussion music and reached their own, independent cult status. Newsweek included GOCOO in their all time top 100 list of Japan's heroes, challengers, pioneers and icons, as “their borderless sound, a mix of rock and ethnic music from around the world, is cherished by international audiences”.
