The Way Of Taiko: The Heartbeat Of Japan 2020

Traditional Drum Workshop

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health threat, we are suspending public programs scheduled from March 16 through September 30, 2020. Morikami will continue to reevaluate and reassess as information about the virus and its impact on public health is presented.

The workshop includes an introduction to the history of taiko. Participants are taught how to understand sounds and movements, i.e., how to connect nature and the meaning of body movement. They become familiar with the way of taiko and drumming techniques. Instruments are provided for you.
