Learn DokoKara, directly from the composer! This exciting piece was originally commissioned and performed by Zenshin Daiko of Maui, graciously given to the taiko community as a "copyleft" piece your group can now use in its repertoire. Making creative use of "don" and "ka", this piece uses rhythms in a challenging and dynamic arrangement. The course teaches the full lead-nagado part, with an introduction to the jiuchi (base-beat) parts. LATIdama evaluation opportunity!
2013 DokoKara Recital at our very own Bounenkai event!
Important NOTE: LATI will be closed for the week of June 9~15 due to involvement in the North American Taiko Conference held in Las Vegas.
