We have a chance to buy drums at an amazingly low price, but we need to act fast! Help us raise money before this deal passes us by.
"Bam!!! The first strike smacks your ears. The sound rises up through your chest, pounds in your lungs. Rat-a-ta-tat. Thud. Thud. Thud. It’s terrific!!"
-- THE PALM BEACH POST
Fushu Daiko is made up of many nationalities and backgrounds, yet we have been drawn together by the taiko. Through our sound, we wish to create a sense of connection in the hearts of those who hear the taiko's beat.
The practice of playing taiko brings unique benefits to each person in Fushu Daiko and to each person in our dojo; South Florida Taiko Dojo. We love to share that gift with people in classes & workshops.
Fushu Daiko started by making our own drums… the group grew and the founders passed away, but the group kept going, always working to keep our teachers’ spirit alive in practice and performance.

We still have some of our original hand made taiko, but the group has had to add more drums to fill our performance and training needs. Inexpensive taiko just don’t last, but of course, good quality taiko are very expensive! We’re thankful to have been given a much-needed opportunity to buy 5 Japanese- made taiko from a very generous supporter who offered us the first chance at buying them. We’d be able to add richer tones to our performance with these beautiful drums! We could teach more students and do more performances too. We’re working hard, but we need a little help. Would you be a part of this moment and help us reach our goal? We’re almost there! We promise: we’ll play our hearts out for you!
