"Taiko" is the Japanese word for "big drum". Taiko drums have been a part of Japanese life for thousands of years and have seen a variety of uses in everything from festivals to war to religious ceremonies. Formed in 2002, Triangle Taiko is an all-volunteer Japanese drumming group based in the Raleigh, NC with the motto, “Sharing the spirit of taiko with the world." Our performances consist of a mixture of traditional and contemporary pieces. We also host workshops to teach everyone how to experience the joy of playing taiko together.
