TaikOz is a percussion - largely taiko - ensemble based in Sydney, Australia. The ensemble was founded in 1997 by Ian Cleworth and shakuhachi dai-shihan, grand master Riley Lee. The group now features eight performers, all exponents of wadaiko, or Japanese drumming. TaikOz performs year-round, as well as providing classes to interested members of the public. The ensemble has released three CDs: Taiko No Sekai, Live At Angel Place (a live recording, also released on DVD) and Daichi... Big Earth.
