Dear Student Activity Program Director,
We would like to give you some information on two incredible programs that have been popular around the country and abroad. Taikoza presents a very entertaining and educational concert. The program is a great way to introduce students to Japan through music and dances. We believe that multicultural programs are an important part of student’s education and our programs are the perfect fit for any multicultural events as well as regular concert series. Another group that we present is East Winds Ensemble for more classical oriented programs. This is a chamber ensemble made solely of Japanese instruments: The shakuhachi and the koto. Please, feel free to contact me for more questions, I included a website address where you can find more information.

Taikoza (Japanese Taiko) Experience the thunderous rhythms of the ancestral Japanese Taiko drums and the magical sounds of the bamboo flutes. Hear the 150 lb. Taiko drums give thunderous voice to traditional and new compositions. Roughly translated, Taiko means big drums-and that’s exactly what Taikoza brings: big drums, powerful rhythms, and electrifying and room-thumping energy. This exciting group draws from Japan’s rich tradition of music and performance to create a highly visual performance. With colorful traditional costumes and dynamic motion, Taikoza shows are immensely popular with audiences of all ages. Drawing from Japan's rich tradition of music and performance, Taikoza has created a new sound using a variety of traditional instruments. In addition to drums of assorted sizes, Taikoza incorporates the shakuhachi and the Fue (both bamboo flutes) and colorful dances.
