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 20th May and ending 8th 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 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 7:45-10pm on
Mondays at the same venue.
