WICA welcomes back Portland Taiko, the award-winning Asian-American drumming ensemble. Rhythm, melody, and movement are woven together into an exhilarating musical experience. By combining traditional, contemporary compositions and choreography, Portland Taiko takes Asian-American music into unexplored territory with its innovative and provocative creations. Taiko, the Japanese word for “drum” and the name of the art form, has its roots in Japanese tradition and was used in religious ceremonies, community festivals, and theater.
In addition to the public evening performance, there will be a free matinee earlier that day for local students – made possible by the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts.
These activities are supported, in part, with funds provided by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF), ArtsWA, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Adults $15 | Students $12
