Taiko Roots – AKA Taiko-palooza

Chibi_Taiko_Roots_Musubi_2000

Great show at the Vancouver Ballroom last night as part of the Heart of the City Festival – in order of appearance: Sansho Daiko, Katari Taiko + Sawagi Taiko, Sansho Daiko (again!), Uzume Taiko + LOUD, and ending with the group that represents taiko future – Chibi Taiko – who rocked the house down with the youthful energy and drive. As HOTC Executive Director Terry Hunter said afterwards, there is so much variety between the groups, it’s great to see all the groups on the same stage. Grabbed this photo with my iPhone during Chibi’s set (yup – proud dad). See below for photos from the evening.

Thanks to all who came last night – both drummers and audience alike.
