Bellevue World TAIKO Festival / Sounds of TAIKO
~ Different Drums - One Heart ~
The 1st and 2nd World Taiko Festivals were incredible extravaganzas of powerful culture, music, story, and performance that exceeded my expectations in every way. The creators are constantly re-inventing the festival with new performances and elements to surprise and delight both newcomers and existing fans alike. Were so lucky to have the World Taiko Festival, and I look forward to this Octobers performance as one of the highlights of the year!
