Uzume Taiko

Uzume Taiko is West Coast Canada’s premiere professional taiko drumming group performing both nationally and internationally since 1988. They have hand crafted a unique brand of West Coast Canadian taiko drumming that offers a visual, sonic and sensual experience to their audience. Using a diverse collection of percussive and melodic instruments as well as taiko drums, Uzume Taiko has developed a dynamic fusion of old and new styles of drumming — bringing a vibrant, contemporary sensibility to an ancient art.

Uzume Taiko and South Asian Arts create lively expression fusing taiko and dhol drums with other percussion. They play dynamic rhythms and perform energetic choreography in an exuberant presentation of West Coast Canadian festival drumming.
