Japanese drummers strike right note


An unusual Japanese drum group which features an array of giant drums has been appearing at the annual Fringe arts festival in Edinburgh.

Combining traditional culture with a modern twist, Tao's leader, Yoshinoli Suito, says he wants to "give as many people as possible the power of the drums."

Anahita Shams reports from Edinburgh.
