GOCOO is a 11-person (7 women, 4 men) drumming group who captures the audience with original grooves woven with Japanese drums, taikos. The group was formed in 1997 and debuted at a big techno music festival, "Rainbow 2000", the same year. Over 30 taikos, including ones made by one of the group's members, Taro Matsuzaki, bring life to the one-and-only "GOCOO world."

While many Taiko groups stoically pursue a traditional style, and while others seek new interpretations of traditional Japanese music by taking in elements of Western music, GOCOO's beat exhibits free-spirited, innovative taiko music that appeals directly to the heart of any audience. GOCOO can be called the most sophisticated drumming Gruppe of the present. The group not only incites enthusiasts of primal, spectacular drumming shows. With it's complex poly-rhythmic beats GOCOO creates a "goosebumps"- sound that fascinates a wide range of audiences. Together with an impressive light-show GOCOO's two hours lasting performance can truly be called a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
