In many parts of North America, taiko drumming is instrumental in creating and celebrating Asian, Asian-American, and Asian-Canadian communities.  Striving to nurture that community in Toronto, from August 25th-27th we’ve once again planned an exciting 3-day festival made up of the following:

Taiko Peace public forum, led by PJ Hirabayashi

Workshop Series

Bang On!  Toronto Taiko Festival Concert

This year we’re very pleased to be featuring a number of different taiko drummers from across the region – click here to read about our guest artists!



* All workshops and events will take place at the University of Toronto Faculty of Music
(Edward Johnson Building, 80 Queen’s Park, Toronto ON M5S 2C5)
