Kaminari Taiko returns to the Alex River Fête and Dragonboat Races in Alexandria, Louisiana. This year we're collaborating with Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko of Texas, an Eisa (Okinawan drumming and dance) ensemble, to bring Alexandria our biggest and best taiko show yet!
The combination of big taiko drums and joyful, energetic dance will be a lively splash of Japanese culture in this diverse, multi-day riverside celebration.
Both groups will perform a smaller show at the Friday night street festival at 7:00 PM, and a larger show on Saturday in the Riverfront Amphitheater during halftime at the Dragonboat Races (about 11:30 AM).
Bring your family and friends, and come out and celebrate with us!
