Yoshikazu Fujimoto leads taiko and dance workshops at Tokyo’s Taiko no Sato Kyowakan every two months. This series gives participants the chance to learn three different pieces in depth.
Anyone is welcome to join part way through the series, too.
There’s the dynamic taiko played at festivals in his hometown, “Wachi Daiko,” demon sword dance “Onikenbai” from Kitakami in Iwate Prefecture, and the big drum “Odaiko,” which Yoshikazu has performed for decades on the Kodo stage.
Take one, two, or all three classes! Yoshikazu’s body and soul approach to performing arts will ensure a fun, energetic workout for all!
