First of all, KWTC classes on Sunday, Aug 21st is CANCELLED (my apologies for those who may have shown up Wednesday). Many KWTC students and I will be at the North American Taiko Conference happening at Stanford University this weekend. I will be teaching a workshop on Yatai Bayashi and an Advance Fue Masterclass, will be a panelist on two discussions – “taiko and the internet” and “tradition and innovation” as well as perform as a guest with both Kenny Endo Taiko Ensemble and San Francisco Taiko Dojo at the Taiko Jam Concert. I’m very excited to see many old friends there, including my first fue teacher Suzuki Kyosuke, great hougaku percussionist Mochizuki Saburo and Yoshihiko Miyamoto from Miyamoto Taiko, a supporter of KWTC. Please find more details here: https://www.taikoconference.org
Yesterday in LA, I finished up a duo recording with taiko master Kenny Endo. This is a project Kenny and I have been talking about doing for years and finally it’s coming to fruition with the help of Shoji Kameda (of On Ensemble and Hiroshima) working this time as sound engineer/producer/mixer. We both contributed compositions as well as a came up concepts for improvisations. It’s been a fun and inspiring process and I don’t think there’s ever been a taiko/fue album quite like this – if I do say so myself!
I will let you all know when it comes out. Until then, hope to be drumming with you all soon!
