Hi Everyone!! I'm Karen from Boston, MA, USA. I look forward to seeing you all at Taikopalooza! I love this project so much and love being part of the team. I have my own group The Genki Spark as well as I have many taiko projects. Most of my projects are about building strong communities, uniting people, and using taiko to help people grow in their lives. Taiko is my full time passion and I've been part of the North American Taiko Community since 1997.
