//About Ten Drum Art Percussion Group (Tainan, Taiwan)//
For thousands of years, Taiwan, known as “Formosa,” the island of the sea, has nurtured rich natural resources and a diverse cultural scene. The “Ten Drum” group, composed of enthusiasts of percussion arts, actively gathers Taiwan and world drum music cultures, refining exquisite percussion art.

The “Ten Drum Art Percussion Group” was founded in the spring of 2000. The mission of the group is to pass on and create Taiwan’s regionalized culture and promote the inheritance of percussion art. The character “十” (ten) symbolizes overlapping drumsticks, gathering energy from all directions to unite and consolidate strength.

Over the years, the music creations of the group have been well-loved by audiences. Utilizing local themes, landscapes, and elements of diverse ethnic percussion, they have enriched the traditional appearance of percussion art and amazed the public with the diversity and excitement of drums.

“Ten Drum” connects the unique characteristics and styles of urban operations through the power of culture. In 2007, the “Ten Drum Culture Village” was established in Rende Township, Tainan County, aiming to further the development of an “Asian Drum Music Exchange Platform.” The group hopes to awaken national attention to traditional drumming, aiming to create a vibrant, diverse, indigenous, and forward-thinking drumming culture in Taiwan, and ultimately make Taiwan a famous “Island of Drumming” in the world.
