Katari Taiko's 35th Anniversary Concert
Katari Taiko, the first taiko group formed in Canada, is a constantly changing and intensely creative hybrid of Japanese and Canadian music. In celebration of its      35th Anniversary, Katari Taiko is presenting a special concert featuring its own contemporary and traditional music and that of guests, Chibi Taiko, Sansho Daiko, Sawagi Taiko and Vancouver Okinawa Taiko. All of the groups will join Katari Taiko in the premiere of a brand new collaborative work inspired by the return of the wild salmon to the Fraser River.

Katari Taiko has the distinction of being the first taiko drum group founded in Canada.  The group has developed a large and enthusiastic following since its inception in 1979, performing throughout Canada and the US, appearing in numerous festival and theatre settings.

Katari Taiko has built an extensive repertoire of both traditional and modern pieces, including original compositions. Their performances incorporate vocals, poetry and theatre. The synergy of the group, their joy and passion, together with the visceral experience of the drumming appeals to audiences of all ages and transcends cultural barriers.

Taiko music is rooted in the history of rural farming and fishing communities throughout Japan. Katari Taiko combines the traditional rhythms and discipline of the drums with the power of choreographed and improvisational movement.  Over the past three and a half decades, Katari Taiko has undergone many changes, but has always remained committed to bringing Japanese and Japanese-Canadian culture to the broader community; supporting grassroots initiatives and progressive causes; and balancing tradition with innovation.


BOX OFFICE OPENS AT 6:30pm.
