Midnight Taiko Kai

Midnight Taiko Kai is a group of Taiko drummers based in Calgary who love to spread the art of Japanese drumming. The group currently has 17 members and have performed at well over 150 events throughout Calgary and Alberta and have worked extensively with local organizations such as the Calgary Japanese Community Association (CJCA), Calgary Opera, Calgary Wind Symphony, University of Calgary and the NHL Calgary Flames. Many of their songs have roots from the traditional Taiko groups on the northern island of Hokkaido, Japan, but their continued inspiration comes from the rich and diverse styles of Taiko ensembles from Japan and throughout the world. Their goal is to share their passion for drumming and perpetuate the art by creating powerful rhythms, heart-stopping beats, and eye-catching performances for their audience and offering workshops throughout the year for anyone who is interested in playing Taiko.
