TaikoArts Midwest Launch

This month is the launch of TaikoArts Midwest, a new organization focused on celebrating and recognizing the full diversity and depth of taiko arts and built on the belief that taiko has the power to make the world a better place.

TaikoArts Midwest will be celebrating this new era of taiko at their Taiko Jam at the end of this month. Founded by Jennifer Weir, TaikoArts Midwest is an independent spin-off from Mu Performing Arts and retains the same leadership, artists, music, studio, and instruments as existed with Mu Daiko. It is based in Minneapolis, MN and supports two resident taiko groups: Mu Daiko and ensemble-MA. This event features performances from Mu Daiko, ensemble-MA, Yuichi Kimura, Tiffany Tamaribuchi, Shoji Kameda, UNIT SOUZOU, and Fubuki Daiko. You can access the promotional flyer via our website.
