About…Tainan City, Taiwan-The Ten Drum Art Percussion Group
Nominated for Domestic and International Golden Melody Awards, Grammy Awards, and American Independent Awards
  Over thousands of years, the ocean island of "Formosa" gave birth to a wealth of natural resources, diverse arts, and humanities.  As a result of this environment, the " Ten Drum " artists were created and they not only have then been active in Taiwan but also they have converged with the world drumming culture.
Ten Drum Art Percussion Group was established in the spring of 2000 and "To share Taiwanese local culture and carry forward the drumming art heritage." is the group’s main development goals. The word "ten" represents a pair of crossed drumsticks that bring together energy and gather together the strength of unity.
Over the years, the group’s musical works have been loved by the audiences because of the artistic themes of land, scenery, and diverse ethnic percussion elements along with the rich traditional appearances helps to make the "drum" so diverse and exciting!  In addition, the Ten Drum Art Percussion Group also has the following objectives:  Native percussion styles, popular national drum techniques, local education, diverse ideas, educational enlightenment, invite world cultures, and promoting the art of drumming.
Since Taiwan was colonized for much of its history so it does not really have its own drumming techniques.  Outside drumming influences are many, but there is a lack of unique local spirit. The  Ten Drum Percussion Group leader felt that Taiwan's thousands of years of drum technique did have not have its own roots, so the leader decided to commit to creating a truly unique Taiwanese drum music for the future of the Taiwan art culture.  Therefore most of the groups drum music reflects the history, scenery, and other local cultural themes so that the drum art culture of Taiwan can continue forever.

The concept of "Ten Drums" is used to develop the city culture and style strengths.  During 2007 in Ren-De Township, Tainan County, "Ten Drum Culture Village" was established to further the goal of developing efforts to create "Asia's Drumming Platform" and create local percussion art.  It is hoped that this will inspire people be interested in the importance of traditional drumming and further understand the attempt to create a lively, diverse, both local and forward-looking drum technique cultural style in Taiwan and also develop Taiwan became world famous as the “Drumming Island”.
