Taiko Ren

San Francisco, California, United States

Founded 2000

Background Information

Group's Mission and Motivation

We are Taiko Ren: "taiko" for the Japanese style of drumming, combining dynamic movement and percussion; and "ren," meaning a close-knit collaborative group.

Together, we explore and create a positive, expressive style of music, bring this powerful art form to diverse audiences, and play for the sheer joy of drumming.

Group History
Describe how, where, and why the ensemble was founded. What was its inspiration?

Taiko Ren has been drumming collectively since 2000. We come together with five to ten years each of training and performance experience with San Francisco Taiko Dojo and other organizations. We have performed in varied venues including festivals, community and school events, corporate shows, and private events.
