Uzume Taiko Drum Group Society

Uzume Taiko is Canada’s First Professional Taiko Ensemble. We are a loud fusion of Pacific West Coast, North American, Asian, and European sensibilities with a flair for the dramatic! We make our music using Taiko drums, percussion instruments and flutes and find interesting ways to combine them with modern instruments and voices to create music that is an expression of our desire to see harmony and peace in the world.

Members of Uzume Taiko perform in a variety of different situations ranging from elementary and secondary school shows, to community festival and corporate events and touring evening concerts throughout B.C., Canada, the US, Mexico, Asia, the United Kingdom and Western Europe. Along with giving performances, we like to teach people how to play these instruments and we give workshops to people of all ages in schools, communities and at our Studio.
