Group's Mission and Motivation

Watanabe Taiko Drummers (copyright@1999 Fukushima Ondo)
***stick twirling & impressive taiko numbers***
Our mission is to expand Watanabe Taiko with serious taiko players on Maui who want to become a professional taiko player.

The Fukushima Ondo, copy written by Watanabe Taiko Drummers has numerous beats, movements, speeds, and is great for performances. We are not a non profit or church group. Our current players create their own songs. Our songs are unique and intense with form and style.
