IMG_0142IMG_0147We had an amazing time at this year’s East Coast Taiko Conference! Thank you so much to Skidmore SkiDaiko for hosting. It was so amazing to learn from the best and play with our friends from so many groups!

GENDO and YAMATAI began a special relationship when Jon Wang (Brown Gendo alum.) and Dan Porter (Cornell Yamatai alum.) came together four years ago to plan the first East Coast Taiko Conference at Cornell University. Our bond was only strengthened when our director Sam Huang joined forces with Ingrid Tu (Yamatai) to organize ECTC at Brown last year! This year’s ECTC was amazing because neither group was hosting, which gave us more time to hang out and get to know each other :D.
