Naruwan Taiko
Naruwan TAiko practices "taiko," a style of drumming from Japan that was traditionally used in battlefields or festivals. Although the group practices a Japanese art form, the name Naruwan is actually a tribal Taiwanese Ami greeting which implies, "welcome," "home," and "family" and is something a person would say to someone close to them, like a family member. This name embodies the Naruwan's vision of the taiko as a tool for bringing together people of all backgrounds, ages, and experiences to produce a powerful united sound. Naruwan Taiko is currently teaching classes in San Diego and is in the process of building a full fledged school for the community!
