Taiko is Japanese drumming. Seattle Matsuri Taiko is headed by temple member Donna Zumoto and the group rehearses at the temple, attends area workshops, and performs at the summer Bon Odori festival and at selected events throughout the year.
Donna also teaches taiko classes to other temple young people and occasionally offers workshops for those more advanced in years!
‘Matsuri’, a standard taiko song played by Seattle Matsuri Taiko and younger associates at the 2006 Bon Odori Festival on July 20, 2006.
