Mission Statement

Our mission is to study, preserve and promote traditional and contemporary styles of taiko drumming. Taiko is a Japanese style of percussion, which combines music, movement and spirit. The spirit of the drummers produces the powerful sound of the drums, and creates a dynamic and visually exciting art form. We seek to provide the Sacramento metropolitan community with opportunities for greater cultural awareness and understanding of this traditional Japanese art form through performances and classes.

Description

Sacramento Taiko Dan is the premiere Japanese drumming ensemble in the greater Sacramento region. Founded in 1989, we are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Our performers include community members and an international touring performance team. The combination of renowned drummers and outstanding drums enables us to provide audiences with world-class entertainment.

WE SEEK TO:

  • Promote cultural awareness and diversity
  • Continue the traditional styles while developing new forms
  • Educate new and existing students from diverse backgrounds
  • Provide top level performances in a wide variety of venues

Sacramento Taiko Dan tours nationally and internationally, with annual appearances at the California State Fair, San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival, Sacramento Pacific Rim Festival, International Taiko Festival, and at UC Berkeley's Zellerbach Hall. We have collaborated with several artists and arts organizations including the Sacramento Ballet, Sacramento Symphony, Camellia Symphony and poet Julia Conner.
