Learn to drum with a selection of festive Japanese music incorporating rhythm patterns played on TAIKO (Japanese drums) and melodies on SHINOBUE (bamboo flute). Pieces covered in this workshop were taught in our 2021 BBK (Bon daiko/drumming, Bon odori/dance, Kane) class, but everyone regardless of taiko experience is welcome to join and learn about these songs: Kagayake Bayashi, Natsumatsuri and Ichiban.

WORKSHOP 8/17 (WED 6:30-8:00pm ET): MI Bon Summer Festival TAIKO
