 ex. Ondekoza, the incredible twins Ryohei & Kohei Inoue = “AUN” will officially launch their career in the US (again) with the new name, fresh sound and the same gracious attitude.

AUN: The Taiko Drum’s New Front!

After 12 Years of fame with world renowned Japanese Taiko Drum Group Ondekoza, and their unbelievable 9,319 mile-run for 1071 days with 355 performance in the US in the mid 90’s, twin brothers Ryohei and Kohei Inoue are back as AUN.

AUN represents ‘A’ the beginning and ‘UN’ the end in Japanese Buddhism originated in Sanskrit, the ancient Indian language.

Japatronic: the music AUN created. Unlike other Taiko Drum Artists, AUN have been crossing boundaries, merging Japanese traditional instruments with electronic sound to be “Japatronic.”

E.A.S.T. – Electric, Acoustic, Spiritualized Transmission:

AUN’s new album was released on September 21 in Japan. Part produced by TM Stevens with an extraordinary guitar solo of Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt, EAST was received with rave reviews for its totally eclectic sound and innovative musical front. In the US, more music insiders are acknowledging AUN. Deborah Rath of CD101.9 FM quotes “Really incredible drum sets, some Jazz, some eastern beats, all mixed up. It’s exciting!”

Musical Ambassadors of cultural exchange

To be true musical ambassadors, AUN already had performances/workshop before the audience of high school and college students: Hunter College (09/15/05), Frederick Douglass Academy in Harlem (09/16/05).  Knowing their intentions, corporations such as Toyota and Uniqlo had AUN to perform for their international events.

Come experience their exciting performance for yourself!!
