Taiko Drumming

The taiko, sometimes called wadaiko, is a traditional type of drum native to Japan. In feudal Japan the moving thump of the drum was used to bolster warriors' morale, set a marching pace and relay orders, but taiko drums have also been used in traditional arts like Noh and gagaku, as well as in festivals. Why not try taiko drumming out for yourself and feel connected to a piece of cultural history that is still a vital part of modern Japanese life? You're sure to get excited when the powerful beat you produce reverberates thoughout the room and your body!
