Hey there and welcome to muscle, sorry drumming central!
About a week ago we went to Narita-san Shinshō-ji temple to watch the show. Admittedly I didn’t really know what Taiko was beforehand, if you’re in the same boat, here is a little history about it’s origins.
Overall really glad I went because we ended up having the BEST time. I thought it would be a quiet affair and just people showcasing their drum skills but it was much MORE than that. I felt quite lucky to have witnessed such talent, coordination and culture. And it was really nice to be a part of something in our local community too.
Below some photos from our day.
*Thanks to Mr Cheerful for taking some of the cool photos featured.
I am not sure what the masks symbolize but this comedy duo were a big hit with the audience!
We were so impressed that myself and a friend spoke about possibly taking up Taiko (even though I have zero hand coordination) one can dream though right!
If you could learn to play any instrument which one would it be and why?
Have a lovely day ahead.
