Toronto Taiko Festival 2024

SAVE THE DATE!

Toronto Taiko Festival is coming August 16-18, 2024!

 

The Toronto Taiko Festival is back for a fourth time. This intimate 3-day gathering will uplift what inspires us most in RAW Taiko: communities learning together and committing to the transformation of self and world.

 

Music and taiko can teach us so much: 

What does it mean to be an active member of our communities? 

Where do we find the strength and confidence to take action?

How do we stay nourished and present in the face of challenging circumstances and systems of oppression?

 

Join us as we explore these questions through the sound and power of taiko. In taiko workshops (all levels), presentations, a film screening, and performances, we will learn from prominent taiko artists and local activists. Together, we’ll explore the potential of music for mobilising our inner strength and collective power.
