Whether you want to bang the huge taiko drums yourself or just learn more about the history of this ancient and sacred Japanese art form, this is the place to go. The teacher is Grand Master Seiichi Tanaka, who was among the first to perform and teach taiko in the United States. His Dojo or school, is recognized internationally for its Taiko mastery. Not just a repository of tradition, the dojo has appeared on the soundtracks of such films as Apocalypse Now and Return of the Jedi. This group has also previously performed with Mickey Hart, Max Roach, and Tito Puente, among others. CDs of the hypnotic performances by the Taiko troupe are available at the Dojo.
