About the event

Gain an introduction to Beta style (upright) drumming and learn key phrases from one of RAW Taiko’s newest repertoire pieces! Composed by Wy Joung Kou and brought to life by the members of RAW Taiko, Kumi is a high energy song that draws its vivacious spirit from North American legacies of kumi-daiko. Rooted in a sense of community and collective empowerment, Kumi revels in the “togetherness” of taiko; attuning to and generating energy and momentum with those around us.

This workshop will cover the basics of Beta form and lead participants through the main chudaiko rhythmic sections of Kumi. Whether you are brand new to taiko and looking for a fun way to begin, or you are a seasoned player looking to discover something new, this repertoire-based workshop will offer an action packed learning experience for participants of all levels.

ALL LEVELS - no prior taiko experience required
