On August 25th Miyabi Arashi taiko school, led by Moko-Sensei, performed at the US embassy compound friendship day. It was a lot of fun, but also very hot. This is a clip of River piece, which is one of my favorites:
We played a bunch of songs, some of which feature the kids, some of which are more challenging (like River piece and Chichibu, which I didn’t play this time, but we’re now learning in classes). I played Tiger Leader in Dragon Tiger, on the big drum, which was fun.
Following this performance, we’ve had a lot of new embassy sign-ups for the taiko classes, so our numbers are growing!
