Event Description

UnitOne, a professional taiko group based under the umbrella of Japanese taiko drum maker, Asano Taiko U.S., share the stage for the very first time with San Jose Taiko (SJT). A contemporary ensemble since its founding in 1973, SJT takes equal parts inspiration from the Japanese roots of taiko and from other music and movement influences to create a distinct style that has been called “dancing with drums.” As only the third taiko group to form outside of Japan, SJT has been a key influencer of the evolution of the American version of the art with compositions drawing inspiration from many genres of popular American music and the incorporation of instruments from around the world. Approaching taiko as a path to social action, community development, cultural preservation, and Asian-American identity – SJT produces and presents social justice projects, like Swingposium, to elevate the profile of San Jose’s Japantown and the critical contributions Asian-Americans have made to US culture, economy, and history.
