Taikoza Live!

IMG_5524 We recently went to a performance at Adelphi University of Taikoza Live.  This is a Japanese music and dance group which play ancestral Japanese Taiko drums and bamboo flutes.  The thunderous sound that filled the theater were amazing and captivated the audience full of children of all different ages.  I  was thrilled to be able to experience this with Emily and hope that it is something that will inspire a love of all different forms of musical expression.

Here is a video of the performance the we went to, but you really have to experience it first hand it is amazing…if they are ever in your area I highly recommend seeing them perform!!


You can read more about Taikoza Live at Symphony Space and on their website.

That is a great "adventure". It is so wonderful to experience the beauty and art of different cultures. Thanks for sharing. Checked out their site, but no performances near us:-( Kerri

What fun! My university had a Taiko drumming group, and I always loved watching them perform. It would be a great thing to take my kids to!

I would love to take my children to a performance like this.

Your stocking pumpkin is such a clever idea and Emily did a great job with this.
