Me playing drum at Taiwan + Watch Din Tao- Leader of The Parade (Highly Recommended)

This was taken at Ten Drum Culture Village in Taiwan  (27 Nov 2011)!!!
The drum is really BIG!!!

Introduction of the Ten Drum Culture Village 
Ten Drum Culture Village is located at the border of Tainan city and county. It separates from the busy downtown by loneness forest.

The location near Tainan city also provides citizens a new paradise to familiarize culture art. Ten Drum Culture Village has about 5 hectares. There are 16 old warehouses built in Japanese colonial rule. In 2005, Ten Drum takes over the place and re-plans it.

They use the limited capital combining Mr. Shi Hsieh’s ideas with famous designer, Mr. Liu Guo Tsang’s choreographed plan to proceed. They have finished the second stage work. After lying idle many years, the past Rende Che Lu Cian sugar refineries of Taiwan Sugar Corporation reappear their graces of one hundred years. Combining the Taiwan drum music of Ten Drum, it becomes the first international art village for drum music of Asia.

Since 2007, they choose to stay at the Rende sugar refinery of Tainan county Rende township. They build a Ten Drum Culture Village for about 5 hectares by themselves. It includes Introduction Hall, Drum Museum, Drum Beating Experience Classroom, Ten Drum Restaurant, Small Theater(for 250 people), Cistern Theater(outdoor theater for 1500 people), ChimneySquaree), Forest Breath Alameda, and Ten Drum Praying Hall.

Since January 1st, 2007, it opens normally and connects with Chi Mei Museum, Pao An Railroad Station, and Hu Shan Farm to become Rende Culture Zone, and it also turns into the new art culture landmark of South Taiwan.

Synopsis: Ah-Tai (Alan Kuo) was born and raised in one of Taichung’s most notable Din-Tao troupes. His father (Chen Bo Zheng) had deemed him a good-for-nothing since his childhood days. Ah-Tai’s rebellious streak had strained their father-son relationship as such. With a stroke of chance, Ah-Tai is unintentionally appointed the leader of the troupe. This resulted in suspicions and distrust arising from both troupe members and the rival troupe led by Ah-Xian (Alien Huang). Ah-Tai decides to prove his worth by embarking on a performance journey across Taiwan with his young troupe members. This coming-of-age tale hopes to ignite the waning interests of Din Tao traditions through one man’s vision and the value of family bonds.
