Japanese: Taiko Time – Drummers | UK
Japanese Music (Taiko Time)
Taiko Time is one of the largest Taiko groups in the UK with up to 12 performing members. They play original Taiko compositions, but with roots based firmly in a rich bed of traditional Taiko rhythms and techniques from all over Japan. They also offer Taiko drumming workshops.
Taiko Time’s performances display a wide variety of physical playing styles, rhythms and musical textures. The group has performed for diverse audiences from art dealers to marathon runners, clubbers to royalty. They continue to inspire audiences with their uplifting music, boundless energy and pure enjoyment of playing Taiko.
Members of Taiko Time hold public Taiko workshops for people of all ages.
They regularly take the Taiko drums to primary and secondary schools, all around the UK, for introductory Taiko workshops or longer residential projects. These usually culminate in a stunning display of Taiko by the children for the rest of the school.
