Save the Date!
Winter may still be in full swing, but here at Mark H Taiko, we’re already gearing up for our Sakura Taiko Takeover at the Tidal Basin. We will gather among the cherry blossoms at the ANA Tidal Basin Stage for a full day of free, family-friendly Japanese drumming performances!
Support our performers and help make the Sakura Taiko Takeover possible!
100% of proceeds will go to covering the costs of the event and supporting the taiko groups traveling to the DC area.

A full day of great taiko!
We are excited not only to welcome back returning performers Kyo Daiko (Philadelphia, PA), Nen Daiko (Fairfax Station, VA), Pittsburgh Taiko (Pittsburgh, PA), ShinDaiko (Boston, MA), and Triangle Taiko (Raleigh, NC), but also to announce the groups who will be joining us for the first time: GoDaiko Drummers (Novi, MI), Lyco Taiko (Williamsport, PA), and Yamatai (Cornell University, Ithaca, NY)!
It’s an amazing lineup, and we can’t wait to share all of this taiko with you!
About the event
The Sakura Taiko Fest started as a small festival in Maryland and has grown each year, showcasing a range of different drumming styles and celebrating Japanese cultural and artistic traditions. This year, for our 7th annual taiko fest, we’re thrilled to be back at the Tidal Basin with another full-day takeover of the ANA performance stage!
