Performing Arts- Other
Performances and workshops allow our performers to share the joy of Taiko with their audiences. “KOKORO” (heart and mind): playing with all our heart and mindful of the long history of Taiko we strive to present an authentic Taiko experience. "KI" (energy and spirit): through Taiko our “Ki” is expressed; and this energy and spirit is shared and received by our audience. “BUNKA” (culture): Taiko is used as an educational tool to teach the music, culture and history of Japan to children in schools and in the community; and to imbue a strong appreciation for cultural tradition and the arts. In our presentation-“The Drums of Noto Hanto”- the audience becomes part of the performance enacting the roles of peasants who drum and dance as demons to scare away invading Samurai. We perform both traditional works and contemporary ones; combining Taiko drumming with Japanese Folk Dance for an exciting presentation that will entertain, enthrall and enrich all that experience the power of the Taiko Drums of Japan!
