We are excited to invite your group to apply to take part in Washington D.C.’s 2019 National Cherry Blossom Festival “Sakura Taiko Takeover”!
The Mark H Taiko School and Miyako Taiko have been hosting a Sakura Taiko Fest for the last six years as way of building community with taiko groups on the East Coast. Last year we partnered with the National Cherry Blossom festival and brought eight taiko groups to perform under the famed cherry blossoms of D.C. for an awesome six hours of drumming. This year, our goal is to strengthen our ties with and meet new friends from the East Coast taiko community, and so we are welcoming applications from groups anywhere east of the Mississippi!
Are you a community or collegiate group that would like to be a part of the 2019 Sakura Taiko Fest, build new ties, and bring some exciting taiko sounds to one of the most famous cherry blossom festivals in the country? Apply now!
