Hidano is a former member of Kodo, who turned solo in 1990. He is known as a 'futuristic' taiko drummer for his experimental style. Played the huge dadaiko at the opening ceremony of the World Cup in Japan/Korea 2002, and closing ceremony in France four years earlier. Hidano has played in 15 countries around the world, including the "Rhythm Sticks" festival in London 2002. This varied CD includes piano and electric guitar and tracks include 'Amazing Grace' and 'Home Sweet Home', with five solo drumming passages. Richly entertaining.
