Tell us your Taiko Story
what has the last 50 years of taiko brought you and how do you see it moving forward? How have you been incorporating innovative practice or composition methods, teaching styles or artist collaborations into your taiko playing? What are some memorable audience reactions or ways in which your taiko playing has influenced viewers inside and outside of the taiko community?
Please submit a short clip (no more than 5 minutes) to share your take on “To 50 Years and Beyond”. Below are some ideas, but we are open to airing anything you would like to share with the taiko community.
Technology incorporated with Taiko
Taiko in popular culture
Innovative costumes used
New ways to teach taiko
A different approach to practicing taiko
Please submit a performance clip (no more than 10 minutes). In the spirit of our theme this year, we would love to see submission videos of your group collaborating with other groups (non-taiko included!), incorporating technology, utilizing innovative costumes, or your interpretation of “To 50 Years and Beyond”
Please submit your segments or performance by October 16th. We look forward to hearing from you!
If you have any questions, contact Taikothon chair Yuri Kanamaru at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to your submissions!
