Introducing Song Club and Fue Club

In addition to regular taiko practice, we also hold practices for our song and fue clubs to develop our skills in ensemble singing and fue playing. Read about our clubs, plus learn about the popular song Zoku by Kodo, in our latest newsletter

Bye Bye, Old Floor!

We recently took advantage of a short break in performance practices to replace our worn-out studio floor! See the before and after pictures, plus learn about one of our favorite songs, Tsurugi no Mai, in our May newsletter.

It's hard to say goodbye!
