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

The Buddhist Church of Florin, in Sacramento, CA. has a vital and dynamic taiko group that began in 1991 as part of a children summer program. The program was popular that it expanded almost immediately, and is now a year-round, program. Presently, eight teens form the core of the group and have composed many of their own songs.
With several transitions in age, the group’s name changed from the original Kodomo (meaning Children) Taiko to its present name of Florin Hok-kyo Daiko. In keeping with the Buddhist link to taiko, the name; Hok-kyo; was chosen as it means Dharma Bridge, or bridge to truth.
In Buddhism, the ego, or self, is no more or less important than all life. Therefore, the drummer, the drum and the sound are equal with the listener. By practicing and performing as a group, a wider understanding of life and its joys develops along with the perfection of rhythm and form. It becomes a place of shared oneness.
