Japanese Taiko Drumming is an ancient Japanese art form that has found new vitality and relevance in modern day America. It is traditionally played in thousands of small communities and villages throughout Japan. Originally used for religious ceremonies, the power of the drums lent themselves to use during times of war and festivals. Today Taiko is played at festivals, concert halls and always in celebration of the human spirit. Taiko has the capacity to encourage cooperation and teamwork, and is an ideal platform to experience the joy of making music.
