HO ETSU TAIKO
ABOUT HO ETSU TAIKO
Ho Etsu Taiko Is a 10-piece collective of Chicago-based musicians with a fresh take on traditional Japanese Taiko drumming.
They push the envelope through collaborations with other taiko groups, musicians, and culturally focused performance artists while staying grounded in the rich tradition of kumi-daiko. Beyond an emphasis on musicality, they dedicate many hours of training to the aspects of movement and visual presence.
Through their music, they blend the culture of Japanese-American taiko with influences that celebrate the diversity of the ensemble. Their mission is to spread joy through each and every drumbeat by creating music that is true to who they are.
