kinnara taiko

In 1969, Kinnara Taiko emerged as the first Japanese American Buddhist taiko group.  Naming themselves after the celestial musicians of Buddhist mythology, they originated the use of wine barrels to make their own taiko.  The group began composing pieces combining traditional Japanese rhythms with their own musical influences, spurring the growth of an Asian American genre that has since proliferated throughout the country.  As a Buddhist group, emphasis is placed on participation, self-awareness, and discovering the joy in "just" playing.
