The name “HANABI’ means “fireworks”. Bursts of excitement. Unexpected. Our taiko group formed like one of those bursts. We hope to bring you excitement with our taiko sounds.
Our goal is to promote a strong awareness of the Japanese American culture through the traditional art form of taiko drumming. We utilize our energy in creating our own music pieces along with percussion instruments and stories.
We are interested in reaching out to the communities for wellness programs, workshops and cultural education. We perform for various events for the public, private and corporate sector.
We hope our drumming touches your heart as it does ours. The hearts of all the performers must be united to create the powerful heartbeat of taiko.
