Taiko Takes on Form and Energy in Coeur d’Alene Park

Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! The powerful sound of drums reverberated throughout the park as Spokane Taiko brought a little bit of Japan to Browne’s Addition on Thursday, August 17. The group of 9 performers created rhythms from the traditional Renshu to original songs reminiscent of the forces of nature. The audience occasionally joined in with cries of HA as the beat intensified and waves of energy encompassed the crowd. At the end of the concert, children were invited to join the drummers with lessons in creating their own beats. DON Kara! DON Kara! DON Kara! DON Kara!
