Join us at Matsuri 2010

Phoenix Taiko Kai will be performing at 2:50pm on Sunday, February 28th, as part of Matsuri 2010. Join us! We’ll be on the stage nearest 7th St & Monroe in Heritage Square Park.

Of course, there’s far more to Matsuri than PTK. In addition to the booths, food, and festive costumes, one of the two Matsuri stages will be filled with taiko performances — on both days of the event. Fushicho Daiko, our parent group (whose members are our instructors), will be performing on both days. Our dojo’s intermediate-level group, Aozora, performs on Saturday, the 27th, at 11am. And among several other groups will be the highlight of Matsuri — the All Arizona Taiko Team (AATT)!

AATT is a compilation of members of taiko groups from all over the state, from several dojos, who combine to play six songs together. This year, we’re adding “Hyuga” to the set — a tune taught to us by Takeru, lead drummer for the legendary taiko group Yamato. We’ve worked hard on it, and we’re excited to show it off. So come by and soak in the greatness.

See you there!
