In Return: A Community Taiko Concert

February 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

In Return: A Community Taiko Concert

“In Return: A Community Taiko Concert” is the culminating performance of the East Coast Taiko Conference 2024, hosted by Gendo Taiko and part of the Brown Arts IGNITE Series. Rooted in Japanese drumming traditions and pioneered by transnational Asian and Asian American communities, taiko is now a global phenomena. The pandemic has impacted the communal and historical ties within the taiko community, and this concert is a resurgence for taiko performers to gather and share the joys of taiko. Join us as collegiate groups, community-based groups, and professional performers and ensembles come together to reimagine taiko as an artistic and cultural form rooted in reciprocity and community power.

Gendo Taiko is hosting the East Coast Taiko Conference (ECTC) on February 16th-18th, 2024, an annual event hosted by collegiate taiko groups where people from varying backgrounds gather to learn and share their experience with kumi-daiko, Japanese ensemble drumming. ECTC was first hosted in 2011 and has grown in the past 12 years to bring people together from across the world to participate in taiko-related workshops, discussions, lectures, and concerts. This conference will provide opportunities for all members of the taiko community to exchange knowledge, skills, and first-hand experience with taiko from renowned professionals.
