The Power of the Drums

Members of the Taiko Masala at the NY Botanical Garden. The program said that: “The taiko (Japanese drum) has been called “the voice and spirit of the Japanese people.” From its roots in agriculture and use in the ancient music in shrines and temples, traditional taiko folk music is believed to have entertained the gods, attracted good fortune, driven away evil forces and insects, lent strength and courage to warriors, and celebrated life.” – whatever the meaning, they were truly wonderful.
