One of the true joys of the Opening Night for this years The Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival was having the opportunity to see the Raging Asian Women Taiko Drummers. I've including selections from the both pieces they performed before the screening. Talk about an amazing way to energize the crowd and prepare for seeing Kenneth Bi's The Drummer!
Selection from the the first piece of the evening:
Another selection from the the first piece of the evening:
A longer selection from the second piece played which is absolutely stellar. The moment they stopped the crowd roared with applause.
The Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival 2008 runs from November 12-16, 2008 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
