Founded in 1992, Stanford Taiko is one of the leading collegiate taiko groups in North America. During its 26-year history, the group has concertized both internationally and domestically, including tours to Japan, Thailand, China, Guatemala, and the Pacific Northwest. Stanford Taiko remains the only collegiate taiko ensemble to perform at Taiko Jam, the showcase event of the biennial North American Taiko Conference. The group is thrilled to return to Maui, which it last visited in 2011.

Kenny Endo is at the vanguard of the taiko genre, continually paving new paths for this Japanese style of drumming. A performer, composer, and teacher of taiko with numerous awards and accolades, Kenny Endo is a consummate artist, blending Japanese taiko with rhythms influenced from around the world into original melodies and improvisation.
