TAIKOPROJECT

Over one hundred million people have seen TAIKOPROJECT through their televised appearances on the Academy Awards, the Grammys, The Voice, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel, and in music videos for Sean Paul and rock band 30 Seconds to Mars.  They also tour regularly across the U.S. and have performed throughout Europe, Asia, South and Central America.  But seeing them live in your very own school is the only way to experience the real power and excitement of taiko drumming.  Utilizing authentic instruments hand-crafted in Japan, the performers weave traditional and modern forms of taiko together, and share elements of their Japanese and Japanese-American culture.  The highlight of the show takes place when students and teachers are brought up to the stage to play taiko along with the performers for an unforgettable hands-on experience.
