Makoto Taiko 15th Anniversary Concert
Makoto Taiko will present their 15th Anniversary Concert on Saturday, June 28, 2014 at Occidental College's Thorne Hall (1600 Campus Road, Los Angeles, CA 90013) from 6 to 8 pm. Local shamisen artist, Mike Penny, will join us as a special guest.
Makoto Taiko strives to elevate the spirit in the performers and the audience members through playing a traditional Japanese drum known as "Taiko". The group's drumming serves as a bridge across different cultures and encourages global understanding that transcends language and words. Makoto Taiko performs under the instruction of Koji Nakamura, former leader for 20 years of the Shumei Taiko Ensemble in Japan, and 2007 Grammy Award-winner as an artist on Paul Winter's CD album, "Crestone".
Mike Penny is known for his unique style of shamisen playing which fuses east and west musical contexts. Mike studied under sensei Toyoaki Fukushi in Japan.
Makoto Taiko's previous two annual concerts were sold out and therefore purchasing tickets in advance is strongly recommended. Tickets are $20 for the center seating area and $15 for the remainder of the seats.
The concert is our annual fundraising event. We welcome donations so we can continue to inspire audiences, hold classes, and repair drums.
