Mark H Taiko is proud to present
Form and Function: Body Mechanics for the Taiko Player
A Workshop with Kaoru Watanabe
Kaoru Watanabe is a Brooklyn based composer and musician who specializes in both taiko and shinobue (Japanese flutes).
In this workshop, participants will develop stamina, stability, and greater body awareness in order to play taiko with considerably more power, efficiency, and grace. Participants will walk, twist, squat, stretch, breathe, and otherwise move in unconventional ways and be introduced to the elusive martial arts technique of the “unbendable arm.”
Kaoru’s workshop draws on his considerable experience with traditional and contemporary Japanese dance and drumming as well as his work with dancers, musicians, and martial arts experts from across the globe.
