About the performers:
The first children’s taiko ensemble in Canada, Chibi Taiko was formed in the fall of 1993 with the goal of passing this unique and dynamic performing art on to the next generation of Asian Canadians. The group’s philosophy emphasizes cooperation, leadership, responsibility and spirituality in addition to the physical and musical discipline needed to build a cohesive and dynamic taiko ensemble.
Guest performers Yoshikazu and Yoko Fujimoto are founding members of internationally renowned performance group, Kodo, and as such are legends in the taiko world. Yoshikazu Fujimoto will be familiar to Vancouver audiences as the drummer who for years concluded every Kodo performance with a marathon solo on the huge odaiko. Yoko is a founding member of Hanayui, an all-female song and dance group.
Seattle’s Inochi Taiko rounds out the programme. Inochi is made up of drummers who, like all Chibi members have been playing taiko since they were youngsters. The two groups run into each other over the years, hanging out at Regional Taiko Gatherings and discovering a common bond.
