“Gonna” – Japan

gonna-japan-300x200“GONNA” was started in Nagoya in 2003. Pursuing Wadaiko as world music led to the very unique ensemble style with the marimba and the Wadaikos. “GONNA” excels all other groups in the profound harmonies with various percussion instruments and the advanced technique of the ensemble. “GONNA’s” performing style attempts to move beyond restraints. We provide not only a two-hour concert in an over thousand-seat concert hall, but also a small live performance in a cafe or in the precincts of a temple, with our various formation patterns. “GONNA’s” music can never be categorized into one genre. We have very wide repertories such as “traditional Wadaiko pieces,” “sophisticated original pieces” and “contemporary classical pieces.” This must be a reason why we have been gaining a broad base of support. We believe that music has the power to encourage people and to make our lives enriched. We hope our music may be a means of touching people’s hearts.
