Taiko—Japanese for "big drum” – is a relatively modern revival of ancient Japanese drumming traditions. Over time, many areas of Japan developed unique choreography and rhythms celebrating festivals or recreations of historic events. In modern times, Taiko has emerged as a performing art.
Since 1987, Burlington Taiko has been mesmerizing audiences with the powerful, spellbinding and propulsive sounds of the Taiko. Using a background of thunderous drums, graceful movement and colorful pageantry, Burlington Taiko provides a unique opportunity for entertainment and education.
