We’ll be performing and teaching workshops at the Collegiate Taiko Invitational hosted by CSUN Jishin Taiko. This year marks the Invitationals 19th year making it the longest running gathering of taiko players in North America!
It’s always great to teach the next generation of eager taiko nuts and see how the collegiate taiko community has grown. It doesn’t seem that long ago when I was a freshman at Stanford Taiko and we organized the very first Invitational and invited UCLA Kyodo Taiko and UCI Jodaiko for a weekend of workshops and performances. A lot has changed since then but one thing that has stayed consistent is the massive amount of enthusiasm and passion for taiko amongst the groups.
