Taiko is a full-body performance art that blends physicality and musicality, movement and rhythm. Originating in Japan but molded by a globalized world, taiko performances pay homage to ancient rhythms as well as innovate contemporary beats. Join Mountain River Taiko for a brief introduction to taiko and a chance to try your hand at Japanese drumming!
Participants will gain an introduction to taiko, basic skills regarding form and strike, and play a brief song as a group. No experience necessary!
