We went to see TAIKOPROJECT perform last night and wouldn’t you know, I forgot my camera! So I sneaked (snuck?) some with my trusty iPhone. The show was great. Exciting, unique, funny, impressive.










As you can see, the iPhone doesn’t take the best photos (or maybe it’s just me?). If someone can teach me (Andrew? WeeMo?), please. TAIKOPROJECT is based in Los Angeles but look out for a performance near you!


Taiko Project and Kyo Daiko in the City Paper February 26, 2009

Matt’s taiko group, Kyo Daiko, along with the Asian Arts Initiative, assisted in bringing Taiko Project (who recently appeared on the Academy Awards) to Philadelphia. You can read about Taiko Project in the City Paper. I’m sure it will be a great show if you can make it!

Friday, March 6th, 8:00pm at the Annenberg Center
Call 215-898-3900 for tickets or visit The Annenberg Center online

Join the Kyo Daiko Page on Facebook, please!

If you ever attended a performance when they first started, you would be so impressed at the improvement. And I’m not just saying that because Matt is a founder.



Tamagawa Taiko April 13, 2008

My family and I love going to the annual Philadelphia Cherry Blossom Festival’s “Sakura Sunday,” because we love o-hanami and sakura, but also because the Tamagawa drummers and dancers from Tamagawa University’s Performing Arts program perform every year. The first year they came to the festival, 2003, they performed at Temple, but they’ve gotten much “bigger” and more popular since then! Here are some images, and a short video, of today’s show.

I also got some good shots of Mayor Nutter, who was there for the tree planting ceremony.
