Taiko Drummers

Jump start your morning session with the sound of beating drums!!!  Taiko is a drumming style of Japanese origin that has been used for at least 1,400 years.  Today these ancient instruments have been infused with a modern spirit; taiko ensembles called kumi-daiko emphasize speed, fluidity and power, along with a strong sense of choreography. Mixing traditional rhythms with jazz influences, this dynamic performing art stands ready to be the first native Japanese music to become part of the universal language of music that draws various people and cultures from around the globe together.
