UNIT SOUZOU (pronounced “sohzoh”) is at the forefront of a growing artistic movement in the taiko world.
After 20 years performing professionally, Michelle Fujii and Toru Watanabe, Co-directors of UNIT SOUZOU are relentless innovators known for their groundbreaking fusion of taiko and Japanese folk dance. 'Souzou' can be written in three ways meaning 'creation', 'imagination', or 'noisy' alluding to a force by which new ideas are born and take shape in the world. Inspired by these words, UNIT SOUZOU focuses on building creative and imaginative works for the art form of taiko.
