The Wadaiko Rindo Performing Group is comprised of the founding members of Wadaiko Rindo, and experienced performers who have been selected from the pool of regular students. On the occasions of festivals and larger public events, the Purple Performers are joined by students who give their own exciting brand of energy, infecting audiences with rhythms and smiles.
Wadaiko Rindo has performed across Australia at many concerts, festivals and private events, and also travelled further afield for performances overseas. The most notable performances were in Tonga, China, Fiji, New Caledonia and Japan.
With a focus on traditional taiko styles, the group most frequently performs wearing traditional clothing. The performances are spectacular visual displays of stamina, strength and humour, with vibrations produced on stage energising the whole audience.
Dubbed the ‘Purple Performers’, they are given the signature purple Rindo happi (jacket) and represent Wadaiko Rindo at concerts and festivals in across Australia and overseas.
