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 Edinburgh course is on Tuesdays 6:30 - 8:00 pm for 8 weeks starting 10 Sept and ending 29 October 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 performance piece. The piece for this season is Kitsune, a piece based on the uplifting and playful "shichisan" rhythm, named after the "kitsune" fox, which is a trickster & shape-shifter in Japanese traditional folklore.
If you have previous experience in taiko, you may be interested in our "Taiko Night" group, which meets at 8-10pm on Mondays at the same venue.
