TATAKI is a musical act led by Taiwanese shamisen player Zuiko and Finnish drummer/singer Aarne. Zuiko and Aarne share a common characteristic: they both strike their instruments! Whether it’s the bachi hitting the strings of the shamisen or the drumsticks hitting the drums, their performance is highly rooted in percussive sounds and rhythmical elements. With background in rock music in combination with the influence of Japanese music, TATAKI takes you on a joyous and wild journey! Get ready for some hard hitting and freshly arranged traditional pieces from Japan, pop songs from Taiwan, groovy originals, and who knows, maybe some improvisation!
