Organized by

Uzume Taiko Drum Group

UZUME TAIKO (pronunciation) “OO – ZOO – MAY TIE – KO” The group Uzume Taiko was formed in 1989 and takes its name from the goddess of laughter, "Ame no Uzume no Mikoto" (the Heavenly Alarming Female) who according to Japanese legend, first began taiko drumming. In the past 30 years, Uzume Taiko has performed all over the world and for many different kinds of events. During the school year the group performs and leads workshops for both elementary and high schools. The Uzume Taiko Ensemble is a larger group of musicians who perform evening concerts in North America and Internationally. We enjoy playing taiko for all ages and believe that it is especially important for young people to hear and see as many different types of cultural expressions as possible. We all come from different backgrounds and have our own experiences that makes us who we are. We feel that it is important for all of us to share our differences, similarities and experience so that we can all understand one another better.
