Tsukasa Taiko performs at the MCA – Dec 17-18th

Tsukasa Taiko

During Sunday class and the pounding in your head isn’t from Saturday night then the only thing it must mean is that Tsukasa Taiko is practicing down the hall from the dojo. If you have never seen our neighbor’s preform at the Japanese American Service Committee‘s Holiday Delight or at other local events even if you have you now have the chance to see them on the big stage. They will be performing as part of Taiko Legacy 8 at the Museum Of Contemporary Art, 220 E. Chicago Avenue, near the Water Tower.

Riveting taiko drumming, stylized kimono dance, improvisations bridging jazz and Japanese court music – all of these combine for one of the most popular year-end concerts for families.  Tenor saxophonist Edward Wilkerson and percussionist Coco Elysses-Hevia of the powerhouse Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians join Chicago’s Tsukasa Taiko and Shunojo Fujima (Fujima Ryu), plus Melody Takata (Gen Ryu Arts) from San Francisco, and masters Yoko Reikano Kimura (shamisen/koto) and Yasushi Shimazaki (chindoya) from Tokyo.
