Since its very beginnngs, taiko has been inseparable from nature. The raw, visceral power, the delicate nuances and subtle tones, and the unending variations of rhythm echo images of the power, beauty, variety and spiritual resonance we find in nature.
Our goal with the Utah Taiko Experience is to exploit this connection between taiko and nature. We are going to explore, adventure and be inspired by the power and beauty of nature with daily trips to the most beautiful local spots, and learn how to convert that inspiration into creative energy with daily workshops focused on building creativity & expression as a taiko player.
And the best part...we will have the chance to share it with the local community through public workshops & information nights, and a public concert in the football field presented by all of us!
