Rhythm and music are integral parts of the human psyche. We respond to music instinctively and irresistibly. But there are some very special musical experiences that transcend the voices and instruments from which they are composed. These musical experiences can be life changing for some and inspiring for all. Such is the music of BATI-HOLIC. Taira Hiroyuki, Toshiki Fukuyama and Tarokichi Ogawa who collectively make up the group BATI-HOLIC have tapped into this human response to music. Using a mix of singing, whistle and Narimono with Wa-Daiko (Japanese stick drums), BATI-HOLIC creates catchy compositions shaped around specific phrases, resulting in a dynamic performance that brings the audience to their feet every time. BATI-HOLIC’s varied performances span a range of emotions, from frenzied excitement to calm introspection. Their drive, energy and sheer joy for what they create is completely mesmerizing. BATI-HOLIC was formed in 2004 and has performed both in Japan as well as internationally, each time uniting their audiences with their energy and music. BATI-HOLIC have prepared a special performance just for TEDxKyoto that promises to resonate in its passion from Kyoto to the world.
