Reduction 8 

Saturday, December 19, 2020 

The unmistakable sound of Taiko (Japanese drums), typically heard only at seasonal festivals and temples in Japan, has been elevated to a new level on the MCA Stage and other prestigious venues for the last decade and a half. More info coming soon as we prepare to celebrate our seventeenth-anniversary performance.


Taiko Legacy 17

Sunday, December 20, 2020 

The resonating thunder of taiko drums, the precision of traditional Japanese dance and the delicately emotive sound of the Shamisen share the stage when the multigenerational Tsukasa Taiko performs a fascinating and highly entertaining mix of original compositions and arrangements in a broad range of musical styles from ozashiki (geisha chamber music) to minyo (folk music) to ohayashi (classical/folk/theater music) and matsuri taiko (festival taiko music). More info coming soon about our 2020 special guests and theme for the seventeenth-anniversary concert at MCA’s Edlis Neeson Theater.
