Day Four!

It’s already halfway throughTL week! Our last international guest, Grand Master Chizuru Kineya who has been a part of Taiko Legacy for the past few years flew in this morning. As well as our very own Eigen, a Gintenkai alumni who’s back for winter break! This almost completes the original Tsukasa members (minus Kenji who’s currently working full time in Japan) We all started playing taiko in Tsukasa Taiko’s founder Hide’s basement and have been together for the last 15 years. It’s been such a wonderful journey and the annual Taiko Legacy concert is that much more meaningful to us because everyone comes back -including a few of our other Tsukasa alumni- to perform together on stage, as well as new guests, frequent collaborators and our San Francisco sister group.

Tomorrow is our first dress rehearsal.
