Led by siblings Jyuraku and Syouraku Chikushi, Hakata Kinjishi Dance and Drums presents a style derived from music for the Lion Dance, performed to bring good luck. Along with their traditional taiko drums, they collaborate with congas, djembe, and other musical genres. The performance also features their mother Shuraku Chikushi, the only female traditional topspinning (Hakata Koma) artist in Japan.
