Established in 2006 by the percussion master, BanGoGo (Mr. Leung Wing Wah), and enlightened by the renowned Wadaiko Master, Mr. Kawada Sadaichi (Wadaiko GONNA) and Mr.Yosuke Oda (Ex KODO Member), Ban's GIG Drums (BGD) becomes a local drum troupe which develops its unique drumming style out of the traditional Japanese Taiko one.
The word "GIG" in Ban's GIG Drums does not merely refer as performance. It actually is the pronunciation of a Chinese word describing overwhelming passion, in which it reflects what we want people to feel in our drumming.
As Hongkongers love excitements and thrilling experiences, we devote ourselves to bringing spectacular entertainment elements and multinational drumming cultures into our shows, making them authentic, yet non-traditional and extraordinary. Not only do we want to reflect local creative culture in our performances, but we also strive to move audiences by our passion and to bring new insights into drumming.
