Dub This Road (TAIKOPERA) |

Location: Online

An innovative musical meeting, and long-distance hi-fi collaboration between British hapa singer/recording artist Denise Sherwood and groundbreaking all-women’s drum groups, Sawagi and Onibana Taiko, with sound designs by legendary dub reggae producer Adrian Sherwood…   

Specially recorded for Powell Street Festival online, DUB THIS ROAD is a short film adaptation of Denise Sherwood’s debut album THIS ROAD, and presented as a preview version of TAIKOPERA- an experimental concept fusion of taiko drumming and contemporary opera.   

Featuring a unique cast of musicians and performers in a 21st century journey of performance traditions and pandemic theatrics, DUB THIS ROAD (TAIKOPERA) is a risky synthesis, a multidisciplinary meditation, which expands and connects diverse cultural perspectives and Asian Canadian histories. 

Production/direction: Don Chow   

Don Chow curates a collaboration with Denise Sherwood (Japanese-British) and Adrian Sherwood (indie record producer and father of emerging singer-songwriter Denise) and two Vancouver taiko groups.
