“Eri Uchida Taiko Workshop in Zurich” by Mio Teycheney-Takashiro
Taiko Zurich invited Eri Uchida to give a taiko workshop during our stay in Switzerland.
It took a while for everyone to loosen up, but at the end of the session the group displayed a range of nuances in their drumming as they performed for each other while speaking the rhythms (kuchi shoga).
I think Eri was able to convey the importance of using your whole body when you play taiko and making sure your timing and breathing are tuned in to those around you.
Thank you very much to everyone who took part in this workshop!
