The TAIKOPROJECT team is made up of the best and brightest young taiko performers in the U.S. Since its founding, the group has been fiercely gender-balanced and has embraced the multi-cultural openness that has allowed the art form to thrive in America.
From Los Angeles, California they were seeking to create a truly American style of taiko, blending traditional forms in which they were raised, with an innovative and fresh approach to the Japanese drum.
TAIKOPROJECT first made waves when they became the first American taiko group to win the prestigious Tokyo International Taiko Contest, besting all of the Japanese taiko groups in the competition. That year, they were cast in the Mitsubishi Eclipse commercial, the first and still only national advertising campaign to prominently feature taiko.
