gBamboohis a plant that is concerned with a Japanese society since old times. It is like an air which is used in
various ways. It always supports our society.
Our society is flooded with petrochemical products in recent years. However, people start to use bamboo in
new ways to solve an environment problem.
Bamboo, it has been coexisting with people.
Tokyo Rakutakedan is the group that makes musical instruments of bamboo and compose new music.
Now, we go into action to play a part in a bamboo culture.
We are always composing new sound on the "bamboo marimba" which is devised by
Makoto Yabuki (Bamboo orchestra de Marseille ), and bamboo musical instruments
which refer to world musical instruments.
The first step to compose sound is cutting down bamboos one by one. We are creating all musical instruments
and performance by ourselves.
We perform music written by ourselves and an arrangement on the percussion instrument
in a way that is pleasant or exciting.
