Our Sincere condolances to the Taiko Community.
I first found about Taiko Drumming when GM Tanaka was performing in a Broward County South Florida Mall in 1990. That made me a fan of the drums! I loved how I felt and the connection gave me chills! Excieting to feel that happy! It was said if we felt like we wanted to we could yell out with the spirit too! And since have followed Fushu Daiko. Peace.
