About this Performance

The pre-eminent American taiko ensemble comes to The Ford. The LA-based group TAIKOPROJECT brings together the propulsive and intricate sounds of Japanese taiko drumming with koto, marimba, and shinobue–as well as vocals and stunning choreography–to show off the visceral power of this traditional music, alongside contemporary taiko songs composed by the group.

Free Events: The Ford has invited essential workers, fans, and community organizations from across LA county and these concerts are by invitation only.
