OMNY Taiko Concert @ Cranford Community Center

Join OMNY Taiko for an interactive Taiko performance! Taiko (太鼓, literally “big drum”) is a type of Japanese percussion that has been played for well over 1,000 years. Traditionally, taiko were used in religious ceremonies, festivals, and as theatrical accompaniment. Kumi-daiko, or ensemble drumming, was created in the 1950s. In kumi-daiko, many drummers play different-sized drums to create complex rhythms and stylized performances. This style of taiko drumming has become extremely popular and taiko groups have formed all across the world.

This program is for all-ages! Sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library.
