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 Mondays 6:30 - 8:00 pm for 8 weeks starting 25 March and ending 13th May 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 Buchiawase, which is an energetic traditional piece from Kanagawa Prefecture, with lots of movement. It is one of the most well-known taiko rhythms and an excellent introduction to the artform of Wadaiko.
If you have previous experience in taiko, you may be interested in our "Taiko Night" group, which meets at 7:45-10pm on Mondays at the same venue.
