List a selection of your regular performance venues (for example, Denver Sakura Matsuri, Seabrook obon, business conventions, Manzanar Pilgrimage, Maui Marathon, etc.)

We regulary perform up to 50 times a year and since 2010 have done shows/tour throughout North America. We created Canada's largest taiko school project and have done many projects in theatre. In North America, we play often as part of 'iVardensphere' a group that tours Europe: hard core industrial/techno/tribal/dance.

We are one of the only taiko groups to perform a 'Flying Odaiko' show. As part of the Calgary Stampede's ten day run to audiences of 12,000 to 20,000.
