San Francisco Taiko Dojo, the internationally recognized Taiko drumming group and school, presents its annual Taiko Festival, featuring Japan’s own Hiroyuki Hayashida, who is a pioneer of katsugi oke daiko, a unique shouldering taiko. The program’s finale will honor Northern Japan’s taiko community, and all of the people of Japan, devastated by Japan’s quake and tsunami. A portion of the ticket proceeds will go to hard-hit taiko groups from the region.
