WORLD TAIKO CONFERENCE
- Connecting the World with Taiko -
@National Olympics Memorial Youth Center (NYC),
Shibuya Ward, Tokyo
One performing art is cherished in communities all over Japan: taiko (Japanese drumming).
Taiko provides the rhythm to summer festivals that excites and energizes everyone there.
But there is so much more to taiko than the summer traditions that most commonly spring to mind.
In 2020, the Tokyo Olympic Games will draw global attention to Japan and its rich culture. It’s the perfect occasion to connect the world with taiko–the instrument and folk art that has been the heartbeat of Japanese communities for centuries.
Join us in Tokyo in November 2020 where we’ll connect the world with taiko!
