Booming Tree: The Art of Japanese Drumming  

Founded by Gregory Shimizu and Twilla MacLeod 8 years ago, this contemporary drum duo plays to celebrate the strength, power and resiliency of the human form.   Based in Edmonton, Alberta Canada, they have performed as far north as Yellowknife and as far south as New Orleans, and from coast to coast for audiences of 20 to 20,000.
