Mountain River Taiko is celebrating 10 years!! Join us to celebrate our big milestone with an outdoor performance at Millside Park.
About this event
Taiko is a full-body performance art that blends physicality and musicality, movement and rhythm. Originating in Japan but molded by a globalized world, taiko performances pay homage to ancient rhythms as well as innovate contemporary beats.
In addition to our dedicated community performers, our performance will feature special guests from across the US who have shared taiko with us regularly: Tiffany Tamaribuchi (Sacramento Taiko Dan), Esther Vandecar, and Eileen Morgan (Fushicho Daiko). We will also be joined by local musicians Abby Kingman and Shido Hiroyuki, who have been instrumental to MRT’s history.
This is an outdoor event– Please bring adequate preparations for outdoor conditions (sunscreen, bug spray, umbrellas, canopies, etc). Seating is on the lawn in front of the bandshell. Bring lawn chairs, a picnic blanket, and perhaps even a picnic! Crooked Stick Pops and Vegan Pizza Land will be vending food on-site.
