Taiko, Part 1

Japanese Festival 2015-09-05 7

St. Louis Osuwa Taiko is the fixture at the Japanese Festival (along with the sake, of course). It's a high-energy mix of percussion and choreography (short video here) and definitely for the fit. More of them when they take the stage at the garden's amphitheater.

I associate this kind of drumming so with japan that I have a difficulty by seeing not japanese using these style of drumming. But really why not.

I've seen these kind of drums in documentaries... I must have forgotten the term though.
