So instead, you get a song about the ox's cousin, the buffalo.
Fubuki Daiko is an innovative taiko group based in...wait for it... Winnipeg, Manitoba. Yes, that's in Canada. Yes, that's a long way from Japan, both geographically and culturally. But these folks can throw down with the big drums, and they've got a great sense of humor and musical adventure, as you might guess from the song titles "Lemon Lime Tang" and "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride."
This album was released in 2000. Their second album -- Zanshin: Leaving the Heart Behind -- was released in 2004. So I'm thinking we're due another album soon.
