The Rhythm Centre - traditional Japanese
Taiko Drums in action

Taiko (kumi-daiko) is both a modern and ancient art with
a history some two thousand years deep. These huge drums
have a dynamic range from the softest resonance to a sound
resembling thunder. New Zealand exponents of Taiko drumming
include Wai-Taiko (University of Waikato) and have been featured
in Rhythm Centre events and drumming and music festivals in NZ.
