Seattle Kokon Taiko (SKT), Washington's first performing taiko ensemble, invites you to help us celebrate our 35th anniversary of powerful Japanese drumming at RHYTHM, MOVEMENT, & SPIRIT.
SKT, founded in 1980, strives to combine the ancient roots of taiko--based in Japanese drumming, folk dance, vocalization, and bamboo flute--with the modern Japanese American kumi-daiko (group drumming) style. By embracing taiko's traditional origins while adding the innovative and creative energy of contemporary culture, SKT creates a powerful, unique, and fun style that we've shared with audiences of all ages over the last 35 years.
Our 35th anniversary concert will allow us to continue exploring our rich taiko history, honor our mentors, and share with you our growing repertoire of songs both new and old while showcasing our embodiment of the three core elements of taiko: rhythm, movement, and spirit.
We are honored to have guests Michelle Fujii and Toru Watanabe of Unit Souzou; singer-songwriter Aura Ruddell; and Ravenna Woods, a local indie art rock band share in our 35th year celebration!
