Why Support the North American Taiko Conference?

A Dynamic Artform

Taiko came to America in the late 1960’s. Early pioneers were active in the Asian American civil rights movement of the 60’s and 70’s. The North American “taiko community” can trace its roots directly to this conference. Many new ideas and relationships are born when taiko groups get together. Your support of this conference will help the taiko community continue to grow for many years to come.

A Passionate Audience

Taiko is an all-consuming pastime. Players devote hours not only to performance and practice, but also to building drums, sewing costumes and repairing equipment. The NATC brings together over 600 of these enthusiasts in one place, creating an energetic atmosphere. Your brand can be a part of this environment.

A Vibrant Network

There are over 300 taiko groups in North America, and the artform is constantly growing. Groups range in size from 2-person ensembles to schools of 100+ students. Taiko is enjoyed by practitioners of all ages, walks of life and ethnicities. Since 1997, this conference has grown to become an important touch-point for the taiko community to network, develop skills, and reflect.
