I am very excited to be participating in the 2012 Eastern Taiko Conference. I will be teaching two workshops, on the topics of chappa playing and lateral drumming/ katsugi-daiko, as well as performing in concert at the conference with good friends On Ensemble and Kaoru Watanabe.
Should be great fun! Visit the conference site here for more details.
UPDATE: I have recorded some rhythm sketches on chappa and katsugi oke-daiko in advance of the upcoming workshops. Check-out the video clip here.
