Tatsumaki Taiko is a traditional Japanese percussion group based in Berkeley, California. The group was formed in 1998, and since that time they have played for many festivals and cultural events around the bay area. Their name - "Tatsumaki" - comes from the Japanese word for "whirlwind." Literally translated "tatsu - maki" means "spinning dragon." The spinning dragon symbolizes the spirit and energy of Tatsumaki Taiko's drumming. During performances they strive to create the atmosphere of a Japanese festival, and bring people together through the sound of the taiko.
Information about the group's performance schedule and taiko classes can be found on their web site: www.tatsumakitaiko.com
