Leonard Eto “Blendrums”

 

 

Blendrums (blend + drums) is a word coined by Leonard Eto. It has been one of Leonard Eto’s projects since the CD “Blendrums” was released in 2007. The staged is filled with free way of expressing sound and percussion instruments are fascinating. The attractive sound of taiko always exists even in dynamic performances of drums and tap dancing. Leonard Eto’s arrangement harmonize each sound to create a three-dimensional sound atmosphere. Since 2009, Leonard has made 3 Europeans tours, one to East Africa (2011), and one to Central Asia (2012). Image from DVD “Power of Blendrums”(2011)
