Phone: 281-FREE-FUN or 281-373-3386
This award winning and top rated drum group from Shanghai presents theatrical drum drama and excitement in their Texas debut! A spectacle depicts historical and culturally significant drum compositions, GuGu Drum Group showcases profound insight into unity, human evolution, awareness, wisdom, social commitment and communication through percussive movements.
Director Yang Xiaodong takes a contemporary approach to his authentic ancient drums, representing a powerful lineage of drum movements dating back to the times of the Emperors of Chinese Dynasties. GuGu Drum Group uses traditional Chinese drums and the percussive vocabulary of these ancient instruments with modern percussion techniques, most famous just outside of Shanghai. Featuring drum vignettes based on timeless Chinese proverbs, fables and fairy tales, this is GuGu's only stop in Texas!
