Taiko has been a Japanese/Japanese American cultural presence in United States and especially
California) since the late 1960s. Most taiko groups in the US practice Kumi-daiko or "group drumming". Jodaiko is
committed to both respecting and continuing traditions of kumi-daiko with a spirit of passion and dedication, while
at the same time embracing the innovation and musical exploration that comes with being a collegiate group in North
America. Jodaiko encourages members of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds to come experience the resounding beat
of the drums from Japan.
