Through the empowering sounds of the taiko, (Taiko is the Japanese word for drum. In North America, this term is used to describe both the Japanese drum itself and the art form of kumidaiko (ensemble drumming with Japanese drums).   San Jose Taiko brings to life the essence of Japan and its people.  The music of San Jose Taiko infuses traditional Japanese sounds with the beat of world rhythms, including African, Balinese, Latin, American rock and jazz!
 "By playing Japanese-American music we honor our cultural roots. We draw from a traditional source, yet still express ourselves as Americans. By sharing our music we take pride in our heritage, and hope to encourage others to have pride in their own cultural backgrounds."
