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 short course of this exciting discipline which is energetic & fun & learnt alongside other taiko enthusiasts!
The Edinburgh course is on Mondays 6:30 - 8:00 pm for 3 weeks starting 15th July and ending 25th July 2019.
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 short performance piece. Each week you will get a chance to play different juichis, also known as "base rhythms" and learn a short performance piece.
Week 1: Mitsu-uchi Juichi + Matsuri Daiko
Week 2: Gobu Gobu Juichi + Akebono
Week 3: Shichisan Juichi + Hina Daiko
