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 Glasgow course is on Mondays 6:30 - 8:00 pm for 8 weeks starting 9th March 2020, at community venue "The Space", just around the corner from the Barrowlands.

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.
