Big Drums, Big Fun - Maze Daiko in Concert

Mazeru is the Japanese word for "mix" and taiko (daiko) is the Japanese word for "drum". Maze Daiko creates an exciting mix of instrumentation and rhythms with the physical elegance and powerful sounds of taiko.
Maze Daiko combines traditional taiko rhythms and form with non-traditional instrumentation, and cross-cultural grooves. The members of Maze Daiko, Janet Koike, Cristine Sato, Elaine Fong, Kathryn Cabunoc, Tina Blaine and Carolyn West, all have years of collective experience in other taiko or musical groups including San Jose Taiko, Odaiko New England, UCLA Kyodo Taiko, Emeryville Taiko and Rhythmix Ensemble. The different taiko backgrounds mix (Maze) together with unusual instrumentation, marimba, santur, djembe to create original interpretations for taiko that fill the stage with energetic choreography and vibrant sound.

$15 in advance $20 at the door.
