Taiko drumming - "Wadaiko" - is an energetic, physical and highly choreographed art form. Originally from Japan, with roots going back hundreds of years and encompassing a variety of styles, rhythms and movement, this traditional folk art is now developing and spreading as a modern European art form.

Now is the chance for people here in Scotland to experience a full course of this exciting discipline which is energetic & fun & learnt alongside other taiko enthusiasts!

The Mugen Taiko Dojo course is on Wednesday 7:00 - 8:30 pm for 8 weeks starting 10 May & ending 28 June. The Dojo is located just off the main road between Strathaven & Lesmahagow.

This course is designed to be suitable for both beginners & improvers, and will take the participants step by step from the stance, to the bachi drumstick grip through to learning a performance piece. The piece for this season is "Nagareboshi", which is based on the "gobu gobu" rhythm, one of the three main base rhythms. The piece name means "shooting star", which is the inspiration for the choreography. It is a modern composition, in which the participants can learn how to develop light & shade in their playing.

If you have previous experience in taiko, you may be interested in our "Taiko Night" group, which meets at 08:00-10pm on Wednesday at the same venue.
