Voice & Taiko
Instructor: Aki Takahashi
August 20 // 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Kake-goe is a pulse, a confirmation and a call of encouragement. It's a chanting voice, not singing or shouting. In Min'yo, Japanese folk songs, chanting is a very important element because many folk songs originated in a work environment and the chanting of these songs helped people to work in unison. Such chanting also helped to create a fun and lively work environment..
In this workshop, you will learn to use your voice as a percussive instrument along with the taiko beat. Also, as a group, we will learn how to keep time, connect with others, relax and enjoy chanting while playing the taiko together. No experience necessary!
