About Pittsburgh Taiko
Pittsburgh Taiko is dedicated to bringing Japanese group taiko drumming (kumidaiko) to the city of Pittsburgh. Open to anyone interested in learning about the art form, we seek to educate members of the community about taiko and about Japanese culture through performances and outreach activities.
Pittsburgh Taiko performs both regional Japanese drumming styles arranged for the group and original compositions. In this way, we not only look to pass on knowledge of what has come before, but also work to create new possibilities for taiko performance.
