Gendo Taiko x Yamatai Collab: SUNDANCE

This past weekend we sent 14 of our members to the East Coast Taiko Conference (ECTC) hosted by Yamatai at Cornell University. We took dozens of workshops from Taiko experts in their respective fields and can’t wait to put what we’ve learned to good use in our upcoming Spring Show, April 12th and 13th!

We had the opportunity to perform at the ECTC concert and collaborated with Yamatai on a song called Sundance, written by a Yamatai alumnus Ben Pastel!

Enjoy this video of our performance:

End of our Fall workshop series: Thank you!

We just finished our fall workshop series! Over the course of 7 weeks, Michael, Kathleen, Margaret, Wesley and Katrina learned beta Taiko fundamentals and Matsuri, a traditional Japanese festival song. We were really impressed with their form and musicality, so thank you to everyone who participated in our fall community workshops, and congratulations on your awesome performance!

A special thank you to Hayley and the other Gendo Members for helping out during workshops! If you have any questions about this workshop series, or future opportunities to try out Taiko, please email us at brown.taiko@gmail.com.46516729_1088374087988743_5026185834626285568_n.jpg
