The TAIKOPROJECT was founded in 2000 in Los Angeles by a group of young, emerging Taiko drummers seeking to create a truly American style of Taiko by blending the traditional forms in which they were raised with an innovative and fresh aesthetic approach to the Japanese drum. Since that time the musicians have garnered critical acclaim from all over the world and amassed an impressive resume.
Pat speaks with Executive Director Bryan Yamami about what the project is, it’s allure and influences that led to the creation:
The TAIKOPROJECT will be performing at the Green Music Center at Sonoma State University on April 13th. Show starts at 7:30pm and tickets can be found here.
