Yamatai Taiko Concert

Bailey Hall
Yamatai (Cornell Taiko), a student organization at Cornell University dedicated to spreading the art and joy of Taiko, or Japanese drumming, hosted a workshop in February with invited taiko drummer from New York, Kaoru Watanabe.  Mr. Watanabe is among the most accomplished taiko players on the East Coast, and is a former artistic director of the Japanese taiko ensemble Kodo.  On April 21 2012, Yamatai will present a concert at Bailey Hall featuring Yamatai's energetic taiko drumming, incorporating what they learned from the educational workshop with Mr. Watanabe
