NYPBoS Drum Corps Collaborate with the Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers

The weekend of the 28th and 29th of April saw members of the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland drum corps have a 2 day collaborative workshop with the Mugenkyo Taiko Drumming Group who are the only professional group of this kind in the UK. The purpose of the weekend was to expose our very talented young drummers to a different style of drumming and to put together a new collaborative piece that would be performed at the bands major concert in November which has been titled “LEGACY”.

It was a fantastic weekend for everyone involved and definitely worthwhile as our drummers learnt new skills and were able to create a new section for our fanfare. The members of the NYPBoS drum corps would like to thank Mugenkyo members Miyuki and Fiona for their professionalism and enthusiasm with this new concept and look forward to performing with them and the rest of the team in November.
