What is Taiko? Taiko simply means ‘drum’ in Japanese. Nowadays the word also means a contemporary style of drumming that developed in Japan and has since become a worldwide phenomenon. Playing taiko is as fun as it looks but it is takes a lot of practice to do it well. Taiko covers aspects of fitness, percussion and martial arts. Hitting the drum with power is about learning to move freely, not holding any tension in your body, and feeling the rhythm as well as hearing it. Taiko Centre East is based in Norwich, East Anglia. We teach in schools, run classes and workshops, and perform in a wide range of settings.
