Niagara Taiko Group “SHIBUKI” was born in December 2016 as one of the clubs of the JGB. A Japanese Taiko artist, Kenji Furutate gave us an opportunity to start this group, and we also have a Taiko Drum artist, Joe Small as a great mentor, who is from Buffalo. We are all fun members, who are always enthusiastic about polishing our skills and enjoy drum’s rhythm.
This is a brand new club in the JGB, but it has already been very popular and it is becoming a star club of JGB! Now the number of members is increasing a little at a time.
If you would like to watch our past performances, click this link below. Most of us didn’t have any experience prior to joining. So, if you want to do it, you can do it, too!
At the Japanese Culture Day (Bunka-no-Hi) in 2017, we received a standing ovation, which was the first time in the history of the event.
Please contact us if you are interested. No previous experience is necessary.
