Sat. Aug. 8 | Fushu Daiko | WORLD MUSIC (Taiko Drumming) | 25/30/35
Since 1990, Fushu Daiko has been training in the art of Taiko, a musical art form that builds on a 2600+ year old tradition of Japanese drumming. The music combines the traditional drums and rhythms of Japan with musical styles from around the world, such as jazz and rhythm and blues, to create an exciting, powerful cross-cultural experience that strives to cross boundaries and connect cultures.
Fushu Daiko was founded and began training in 1990 under the guidance of Sensei Yoshiko Cane and her husband, Sensei Charles Cane. Sensei hand-made almost all of Fushu Daiko’s original drums, many of which are still used by the group today. Sensei also choreographed and taught many of the rhythms to the group.
