Cincinnati-Dayton Taiko Group was formed in 1999 with the support of JACL of Cincinnati (see above) and Dayton Ohio. They are dedicated to promoting Japanese-style taiko drumming through performance and education, and are active within the Tristate area.
Taiko performances are based on a traditional, Japanese foundation, but emphasize the fun and community spirit that is taiko. The Taiko drums themselves are large drums played in an ensemble which include: shekere, small cymbals, and a large gong. When played together, they produce thundering sounds and exciting rhythms. Cincinnati-Dayton Taiko is open to new members and bookings. For more information, please contact Helen Rindsberg, the co-director of the group: firstname.lastname@example.org
