Japanese Festival of Drums

The AH community had a great time learning about Japan. A BIG THANK YOU to our HSA for sponsoring this electrifying cultural experience.

The music of Taikoza personifies power, grace, pulse, and driving rhythm. This electrifying aural and visual display featured energetic performers who captured the vitality and culture of life in Japan. Highlighted by the thunderous rhythms of ancestral Japanese Taiko drums and the magical sounds of bamboo flutes, this festive experience draws from Japan’s rich tradition
