KNC is so glad to have Spokane Taiko back for 2023! Spokane Taiko is a non-profit organization that seeks to build community and create awareness through the traditional music and rhythms of Japan. Members experience a journey in building relationships, physical stamina, focus, and cooperation (just to name a few). These skills not only contribute to a fine-tuned kumi-daiko ensemble, but to a harmonious lifestyle even outside the group. The culture that surrounds the art of taiko is one that involves patience and discipline in every aspect of life.
