Matsuri Reloaded Workshop

August 14, 2021 @ 5:00 PM 8:00 PM EDT

Matsuri Reloaded

The song known as “Matsuri” throughout the North American taiko community is based on traditional Obon rhythms found all over Japan and played on an angled stand (naname-dai). Whether you are learning this piece for the first time or refreshing your Matsuri skills, come explore this classic (and fun!) set of rhythms! 

This workshop is open to anyone who has taken Mark’s Intro to Naname-uchi workshop or who has previous naname experience. Not sure if this workshop is right for you? Contact Mark H and he can help!

Current Mark H Taiko Protocols

Here are the protocols we are following for the safety and comfort of our students and instructors:

  • ALL participants will be REQUIRED to wear masks in the building, EVEN WHEN PLAYING.
  • We will be limiting capacity to allow us to observe social distancing.
  • Instructors are fully vaccinated.
  • Participants are asked to sanitize their hands at the start of each workshop/class. Drums will be sanitized before and after each workshop.
  • If you own bachi (drum sticks), please bring them. Sanitized bachi will also be available for use. Bachi should NOT be shared during the workshop!
  • We will take regular breaks during which participants will be invited to step away from others in order to take a water break or a “breathing break.” Everyone will be responsible for bringing their own water.
