Suguru Ishii

A member of Hachijo-Daiko Rokunin Kai (Six Members of Hachijo-Daiko Dram). The origin of Hachijo-Daiko dram is the Edo period. Some say that criminals exiled to Hachijojima, the Samurai warrior class confiscated their swords and let off steam beating drums. Ishii is one of the Hachijo-Daiko drummers who inherited that aggressiveness. He travels overseas with his drums and swords (drumsticks) for performance and has jam sessions with dancers of Nihon-buyo (Japanese classical dance).
