Seattle Kokon Taiko (SKT), Washington's first performing taiko ensemble, invites you to help us celebrate our 35th anniversary of powerful Japanese drumming at RHYTHM, MOVEMENT, & SPIRIT, a concert synthesizing the three core elements of taiko.
SKT, founded in 1980, strives to combine the ancient roots of taiko — based in Japanese drumming, folk dance, vocalization, and bamboo flute — with the modern Japanese American kumi-daiko (group drumming) style. By embracing taiko’s traditional origins while adding the innovative and creative energy of contemporary culture, SKT creates a powerful, unique, and fun style that we have shared with audiences of all ages over the last 35 years.
Through taiko, we hope to contribute to the development of a uniquely Japanese American art form — Japanese in origin, American in expression — that weaves threads of continuity between generations and builds bridges of understanding among people of all nationalities and walks of life.
Your contribution, however great or small, will help with venue rental, production costs, guest artists, transportation and lodging, as well as costuming and equipment repairs. In short, your help will allow us to create a more wonderful and magical experience for all to enjoy!
