Originating in ancient India as part of religious and ceremonial events and celebrations, Taiko drumming found its way to Korea, China and Japan. The musical group Japanese Festival Sounds/ Kinnara Taiko blends the traditional art of Taiko drumming with a modern Japanese-American style. The intent is to communicate the cultural fusion through these contemporary compositions for the Taiko drums. John Y. Mori states, "As we express ourselves we create new traditions." Lessons focus on rhythmic patterns, percussion sounds and fusion. Themes: Transformation and Enduring Values.
