OKAYAMA

Participate in a workshop and experience the power of the Japanese Taiko Drum.

Learn and perform Wadaiko together with the Kurashiki Tenryo Taiko drum performance group!
Through history, drums were used as a tool to communicate during hunting, but over the years, they developed in the Occident as a musical instrument. However, in the Orient, they were not just musical instruments, but also a means of communication with the Gods. Wadaiko is a general term for percussion instruments that has been passed down in Japan since ancient times. After observing a professional Taiko drummers group performance, you can have a workshop session with everyone and learn to play on an actual Taiko drum yourself.
