TF2016 Poster

Zenshin Daiko's 18th Annual Taiko Festival Concert will start off with the 50 members of Zenshin Daiko performing some of their favorite pieces and premiering new pieces that were written by its members.

Since forming in 1999, Zenshin Daiko has performed in over 900 cultural and community events all over Hawaii and in California, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Texas, Nevada and Japan.

The second half will feature On Ensemble from Los Angeles. Established in 2002 On Ensemble is one of the most respected ensembles in the taiko (Japanese drumming) world. Led by childhood friends Shoji Kameda and Masato (Maz) Baba, On Ensemble is recognized for infusing the powerful rhythms of taiko with a wide range of musical influences from jazz and rock to central asian overtone singing. Their fearless musical exploration has expanded the artistic range of the taiko and has taken these ancient instruments into new realms.
