Taiko is healing to me because it engages my mind and body... my spirit is enkindled by the sound and rhythm of the drums.
Since 1987, Burlington Taiko has been mesmerizing audiences with the powerful, spellbinding and propulsive sounds of the Taiko. Burlington Taiko Group estimates it has introduced over half a million people to the power of Taiko via public performances including feature performances at the 100th running of the Boston Marathon, annual performances at Burlington's First Night, the Joseph Campbell - Keepers of the Lore festival, the Black Ships Festival in Newport, Rhode Island, and over 200 corporate, collegiate and public performances.
Burlington Taiko Group and Burlington Taiko Youth Ensemble are subsidiaries of Taiko Aikokai New England, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
Fee support for Burlington Taiko may be available to nonprofit organizations through the New England States Touring (NEST) program of the New England Foundation for the Arts.
