Chi Udaka

Chi Udaka seamlessly blends a heart-thumping barrage of virtuosic drumming with the sinuous beauty of Indian dance.

This dynamic, cross-cultural theatrical partnership is a meeting of the thunderous drumming of Taikoz and the intricate classical Indian dance movements of Lingalayam. The vocabulary of both companies is steeped in history and tradition and they now come together with their respective Japanese and Indian practices to break new ground.

Inspired by the forces of nature, Chi Udaka is a meeting of the deep earthiness of taiko drumming (Chi – earth) and the flowing sensuality of dance (Udaka – water). At turns delicate and dramatic, it unites the taiko drums of Taikoz, the shakuhachi flute of Riley Lee, cello and classical Indian vocals with Lingalayam’s juxtaposing of the Bharatha Natyam and Kuchipudi dance styles.

One of the major highlights of the 2014 Sydney Festival, Chi Udaka is an explosively energetic blending of colour, rhythm, dance and music Sydney Arts Guide
