Onibana Taiko, a trio of taiko veterans from Vancouver, are presenting a full evening show in Nelson on Sunday, September 1, 7 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre, presented by a Bent on Art. Start time is at 7 pm.
Onibana Taiko will also do a short community presentation in New Denver at the Bosun Hall on Friday, August 30 at 7:30 p.m., as they embark upon a short tour of the Kootenays.
In addition, Onibana Taiko plans on performing music (echoing the Buddhist celebration of obon, honouring the dead and revisiting roots) at former Japanese-Canadian internment sites around the New Denver area, a personal journey for them.
These Japanese Canadians drummers who enthrall with taiko drum based songs, also perform traditional Japanese folk music and original rock stylized music.
Come check out Onibana Taiko’s unique presentation.
