Regular Activities

We hold a 2-hour practice session every Monday night. We have a short warm up and stretching. We usually start with a warm up drill and then move on to practice one (or more…) of the songs in our repertoire, or learn a new song.

From time to time Alison Roe – a former performing member of Mugenkyo who now plays with Ilk – comes to teach us basics of taiko with a special focus on Hokuriku style.

Between us, we currently have 5 Nagados, 4 Okedos, 2 Shimes and 5 Hiras.  We also have 3 tyre taikos and one black bin taiko which we made ourselves before we had actual drums to play on :-).

Currently, we are 10 members, and we are working on everybody’s knowledge of form (kata) and repertoire.

We run beginners courses and open workshops for all from time to time so please watch our news page for information on those!
