This workshop will go beyond the initial teachings of Chieko's famed style, to start finding your own "style" of drumming through Hachijo Taiko.
Participants combine the beauty of Japanese traditional dance with taiko, learning the powerful Hana Hachijo drumming style made famous by Chieko on tour with Kodo. Open to both female and male performers, participants learn how to push their bodies' strength and endurance to the limit without sacrificing grace. Many of the techniques are directly applicable to other taiko styles by helping to improve general movement and body control.
