Female Kodo drummers performing naked,
« on: September 28, 2017, 07:40:01 pm »


This is an amazing video of a public performance of female Kodo drummers.  Kodo drumming is highly disciplined and steeped in ancient Japanese traditions, one of which is the fact that Kodo drummers have always been strong, powerful males.  These teams of men originally performed their intricate drumming rhythms totally naked, but over the centuries, this has been adapted so that they now wear a "mawashi" loin towel.

But things have changed... it's time for the ladies to show that they are just as good as the men. And they prefer the original form of clothing...

I wonder if they are nude to signify that they are female and are better, or if this is just an "erotic" version of the normal female group...
What is your philosophy?

Why not both? They don't have to be exclusive.

Okay, but "Zenra Porn" is a thing, hence his thought. There's been plenty of times in this forum where someone will post some "OH LOOK AT THESE JAPANESE GIRLS DOING A THING NAKED" video, not realizing it's actually a specific brand of japanese porn. (Case in point, the clip in the OP is just a piece of THIS...)

Japanese society is traditionally patriarchal , Having women performing taiko/kodo drums clothed or naked is challenge for the more conservative sections of japanese society.

So you completely missed the part where I pointed out that this video was a piece of a large porno movie, right? My last post literally links to the whole thing.

Riot is right in calling this out, the only reason why this video segment is out there is to support the porn found in Japan. Now we all hear how crazy the regular porn is in Japan, I think this specific type of video that shows women doing something that traditionally only men were allowed to do, is simply objectifying them in that traditional way. This isnt a pro-women video or anything you would find under the "empowered" category on porn sites (i'm makeing assumptions here). I am not certain this video is positive to either nudism or how women are treated in Japan. Now I am not from Japan, and it is not my culture, so my comments should be taken with a grain of salt but lets try to focus on what the real point of this video is.

Nobody is arguing about this.  Seeing only the ubiquitous couple of minutes that's at the start of this post does not give you the full story. I was quite surprised when i saw the full 45 minutes of it, as it turns into something else entirely and without warning.

Only in that there's no blatant sex nonsense at all (the entire video is over 2 hours, and covers the entire process of putting this show together), but it was made by an adult video company (Soft On Demand) and this is the tamest, most wholesome video they've ever put out.

Your assumption is kinda right..."Feminist Porn" is a real thing, but it's more like, "porn made by women / treating women right".

As for me pointing out that @Brendarella's OP was actually a piece of a porno flick wasn't to call her out, it was a warning to not fall into a trap. Think of it like pointing out your friend has something stuck in their teeth before they run off tryin' to flirt with a potential date.

Ironically, they don't seem to have much percussion in the orchestra. 
I think I know someone they can call.

But My God.  Tchaikovsky would be turning in his grave.  They cannot play.  It sounds so flat.

They are not there to play well, but to look nice while they are playing it.
Please send me a message on the forum before contacting me over IM. For best results, also mention what you want to talk about, I am not much of a smalltalker.

They still play better than some orchestras I've heard.
