3rd anniversary of Asano Taiko US

July 25 marks the 3rd anniversary of Asano Taiko US. Thank you to the students, aikoukai members, staff, family, and friends of our community who have made this milestone possible.

It has been a wild ride, and three years passed in a blink. But through it all we see the power of taiko to connect people. Asano Taiko US' very existence is the result of these connections and the daily support of so many. I am deeply grateful.

UnitOne will be performing this Thursday at JANM. It's FREE!

JANM’s summer evening concert series featuring Asian American performers is back! Tonight’s focus is on taiko, with featured performers East LA Taiko and ASANO TAIKO U.S.'s UnitOne.

Asano Taiko UnitOne boasts some of North America’s most exciting performers and a world-class taiko repertoire. The group has performed at the 2015 North American Taiko Conference and the 2015 Extasia festival in Japan.

12week classの終わり

12 week classが終わるこの1週間。成果発表の場としてゲストを呼んでの演奏会。
太鼓を習いたての生徒さんが数多く、初めて人前で演奏するという緊張が観ている側にも伝わってきました。
 嬉しいのは生徒さんの楽しそうに太鼓を打っている姿。太鼓を楽しむ事ができてる事がとても印象的な演奏会でした。
 
徐々にではあるが新しい太鼓仲間が増えつつあるASANO TAIKO US。どんどん輪が広がっていきますように!
