TaikoArts Midwest - Japanese Drumming with Ensō Daiko

Experience movement-infused, heart-pounding, dynamic group drumming . . . at the library! Minnesota-based Ensō Daiko with TaikoArts Midwest promises to deliver a loud, energetic event incorporating music, dance, culture, and pure athleticism. 

The program will be a combination of performance, lecture, and interactive activities. Audience members will learn the history and cultural context of taiko drumming in Japan and the United States. They will also learn about taiko drums, how they are made, a general vocabulary for the art form, and kuchishoka - how we say and teach rhythms.

*** Warning - not suited for those who are sensitive to loud sounds.
