In Japan, the Taiko or Japanese traditional drum carries a special significance. Used in religious ceremonies, wartime and in celebrations, The taiko’s powerful sound can also reach people at a personal level–it is often compared to a reflection of one’s own heartbeat.
Based in South Florida, RONIN TAIKO performers practice wadaiko, or Japanese drumming. They travel frequently to Japan to train with taiko Sensei (teachers) and further develop their physical and mental discipline in this art form. With additional training backgrounds ranging from martial arts to dance and theatre, RONIN TAIKO hopes to continue bringing Japanese Taiko performances to wider audiences.
With the addition of the WADAIKO ACADEMY, it is RONIN TAIKO’s wish to create a community where wadaiko and Japanese arts can be studied, practiced and performed.
