What is Taiko?
Modern Taiko is a spectacular and energetic performance art form which is constantly growing and evolving through Taiko ensembles all over the world. It combines the sounds and rhythms of drums of all shapes and sizes with dramatic choreography and movement to create a thrilling and dynamic visual spectacle. Taiko is similar in many ways to Japanese martial arts, and is a discipline based on key principles which instill players with a great sense of achievement and pride.
