Street festival for drummers, breakdancers

Sunday, November 16, 2008 - 06:45 AM

On the streets of Shibuya today: drum circles, drumming lessons, and breakdancing. We met a young radio reporter (Pejk spotted his DAT recorder) and he told us it's the third annual Shibuya music festival, called Shibu-on.

Some video highlights: first, breakdancing unplugged - to hand drums, pan flute and didgeridoo. (No patchouli or hacky-sacks sighted.) These guys were actually pretty cool. The female dancer is probably the least girly girl I've seen in Shibuya so far.

And here's a sampling of the drumming:

That was the World Rhythm Summit, the Drum Circle Facilitators Association, and Taiko Master in an arcade down the street.
