Taiko Community

...more than just drumming

Taiko has a special way of bringing people together – it’s “team drumming”, after all. But those connections can extend beyond a single taiko group. Taiko drumming offers the potential for regional, national, and international collaborations that can help break down barriers, build trust and understanding, and be great fun too!
