Ever since releasing the CD “Blendrums” in 2007, taiko player Leonard Eto has been expanding “Blendrums” in and out of Japan. In this DVD “Power of Blendrums”, Leonard Eto lively collaborates with tap dancers and other drummers in ample rhythm. It is a unique work of art that shows stage formations that cannot be seen at live concerts. It also contains many non-performing scenes. The DVD is digital, but edited by Wataru Furuta, smooth texture was added into the image. “Power of Blendrums” will finally be released worldwide!

“Power and Patience” is a message that Leonard Eto received from a drummer who was also a shaman when Leonard Eto traveled to West Africa 20 years ago. The message that implies the relationship between drumming and dancing became the foundation of Leonard’s creative activities. This album, titled with the message from the shaman, synchronizes the rhythm of taiko and guitar with a sequencer which creates time and space that never existed in any other work of art. A brand new sensuous rhythm that takes you to a mystical world!
