Something a little different… (Taiko)

Part of the reason I’ve been absent lately is because I’m taking part in NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, for the eight millionth time in a row. (Number might be slightly exaggerated.) Another part is that I’ve been excited to receive a DVD copy of my very first stage performance doing taiko.

What’s taiko? Basically it’s Japanese-style drumming. You can find more information if you look up wikipedia or any other number of sources, but let’s just say taiko is loosely based off of a very old tradition, but since the 1990s has been changing very rapidly into a popular form of music that’s spreading not only in Japan, but worldwide.

I joined my taiko school about two and a half years ago and finally got up the nerve to take part in a performance, and I’m so happy about it that I’m beaming and ready to do it again.

Maybe if I get permission I’ll find a way to show off my face doing the thing. We’ll see!

More to come as November progresses…
