An earthshaking taiko drum performance by Senzoku Gakuen College of Music’s percussion ensemble that’s equal parts drumming talent, and choreography. The track is called Fertility of the Sea, composed by Eitetsu Hayashi. We can only imagine the sound with a good subwoofer.
Three-year-old Lyonya Shilovskya was invited to join the stage with a symphony orchestra in Russia to perform a section of Offenbach’s classic Orpheus in the Underworld. We’re still convinced he’s an adult in a little kid costume.
Cigarette smoking may be bad for your health, but we’re pretty sure it’s okay to blow smoke rings if you’re filling a bass drum with fog, instead of your lungs with carcinogens. We’re surprised this isn’t already a staple at rock concerts.
Turns out precision and versatility aren’t just for Swiss Army knives. The Top Secret Drum Corps out of the historical drumming city of Basel, Switzerland put on an astounding show at the 2012 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
See that cute girl? While the vocalist in this performance of My Way isn’t too bad on the eyes, she’s quickly upstaged by the drummer and his stick-spinning antics. And his hair. (Thanks Dan!)
We’re not only impressed with six-year-old Jaxon Smith’s self-taught drumming abilities, but his taste in music is impeccable, as he jams along with Foo Fighters’ Pretender.
We don’t blame these guys for initially being afraid when a cop pulled up to their campsite. Luckily the only things he was interested in busting were jams. Canada wins again. Minus that guy at 1:07.
