Cobu, based in New York City, was created as a Live Rhythm Performing Arts Group in 2000.
Yako Miyamoto, the founder of Cobu is a current member of the off broadway-hit STOMP.
Cobu combines elements of the Japanese traditional Taiko drumming with rhythmic Tap dancing.
The extremely positive impact of the performance has received rave reviews from The New York
Times and The Chicago Sun Times. and has touched audiences through major festivals in
Boston and Chicago.

gDance Like Drumming, Drum Like Dancingh

Cobufs motto is inspired by the combined sounds of New York and traditional Japanese culture.
Their signature sound is created organically through acoustic instruments, rather than digital
transcription. This juxtaposition of traditional modernity makes them one of the most unique
and original mind-blowing groups of our time. In 2001, Cobu received gChoreography Awardh
by an organization Mann & Entertainment. Cobu is now the spotlight of entertainment accepted
not only in United States but other countries such as Japan, Europe and all across Asia.


"COBU" is always looking for people/cooperations to support us. We aspire to branch out into the
world with the generous help from all of you. Any shape or form in fine. We are happy if you could
support us for the times to come. Please feel free to contact us at any time. Once again, we thank
those that are already supporting and wish for more to come. Thank you.

I am proud of my Japanese soul. And I love this city where rhythm whirls. My heart beats sometimes
to a Japanese pulse, sometime to a NY pulse. I want to express this new heartbeat fusion of
Japanese style and American style through Japanese Traditional Taiko Drum & American Tap Dance
as a Live-Rhythm-Performance. Feel our heart beat.

LOVE & PEACE
