Drum Circles

For the last couple of months I've been involved in a Japanese drumming group called Taiko. It's a strict choreographed drum group that resembles a mixture of martial arts, dancing, and music. Sensei Tanaka who teaches our class in Japantown in San Francisco as well as a dojo in south San Francisco is credited to bringing this art form to North America and considered The Godfather of Taiko.

You can check him out and the rest of the group from our performance last Saturday:
