Join us at the R.H. Stafford Library for a performance with Teaching Artist Ensō Daiko. This program is a combination of performance, lecture and interactive activities. With an emphasis on individual empowerment and the community building benefits of taiko, the performance is easily adjusted to any age/ability level.
Free and open to the public!
Audience members will learn the history & 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 artform, and kuchishoka - how we say & teach rhythms. Interactive activities, depending on size of audience, can also include Q&A, learning rhythms, trying the drums themselves, and more.
