Taiko enthusiasts in Japan have begun a movement to
popularize and revolutionize the taiko art form, which
has developed from a more or less primitive folk art to
a sophisticated synthesis of rhythm, harmony and body
movement.
Sensei Seiichi Tanaka has studied, played and taught
taiko drumming in Japan and the U.S. over the past 15
years. He is regarded as the only traditional taiko
teacher in North America. He believes there is a new
style of drumming emerging from the development of
American bom drummers. For Mr. Tanaka, taiko is
more than just playing music; it is a commitment to a
way of living that involves music, martial arts and
meditation.
Denver Taiko was formed in 1976 with assistance
from Seiichi Tanaka.
