Have you been wondering what becomes of Kato-san recently?
Kids in en Taiko are busy practicing with Kato-san, and now this Hirado taiko is a part of traveling taiko performance troop!
Taking apart and putting together the stand and carrying Kato-san is a big task (literally, and not easy!), but we are grateful for the new addition, and songs are coming together.
As we talked during Kickstarter campaign, hirado taiko is adding new dynamic to our sound and songs are getting more and more complex and interesting.
Here's a clip for en Taiko's signature song, "Samurai Beat" from the recent performance at the Asian festival organized by Portland Community College.
Sound may not be perfect in this video. BUT! There will be a chance to hear it in person in June. Please come join us for our annual concert!
Saturday, June 15th: en Taiko Annual Concert @Ethos Music's IFCC building (Time TBD)
