Fort Wayne Taiko is an emerging group that has provided Northeast Indiana with taiko classes, workshops, lecture-demonstrations and performances since 2000. The purpose of Fort Wayne Taiko is to promote taiko drumming in the community, Indiana, and the region. They honor the tradition of taiko as they equally strive to integrate taiko with elements of modern dance and other art forms to create experimental, multimedia, multicultural performance art.
Taiko drums are traditional Japanese drums that are usually played with wooden sticks called bachi.
