Taiko Community Alliance


The Taiko Community Alliance (TCA) is an organization formed in early 2013 to serve as a resource for the taiko community by the North American Taiko Conference (NATC) Advisory Council. The NATC has served to bring together taiko artists, instructors, and enthusiasts since its first conference in 1997. The TCA launch meeting took place at Stanford University on August 23 – 25, 2013. Its core values and guiding principles include respect, heritage & evolution, empowerment, inclusivity, and transparency. taikocommunityalliance.org
