Experience the rhythmic heartbeat and spiritual essence of Japan and its people as San Jose Taiko thrills the audience with the powerful, spellbinding and propulsive sounds of the Taiko drums. Inspired by traditional Japanese drumming and founded in 1973, San Jose Taiko brings people together, magically dissolving the separation between drummer and audience. In 1987, San Jose Taiko became one of the first American Taiko ensembles invited to tour Japan. Audience members will be drawn to the empowering sounds of the Taiko and inspired by the continued possibilities, renewal and transformation that the rhythm and beat invokes.Join us before the public show in the Atwood Concert Hall Lobby at 6:30 PM for a pre-show performance by Tomodachi Daiko and Wadaiko AK.
