Who We Are

Kaminari Taiko enriches the lives of our members and audiences by learning, performing, and preserving the Japanese art of taiko.

Since the group's founding in 1996, Kaminari Taiko has expanded its cultural influence across Texas and the Gulf South. We reach thousands of people each year through concerts, festivals, and classes.

By fusing traditional instruments with modern rhythms, Kaminari strives to respectfully advance taiko as an art form, and to inspire audiences in Texas and beyond.
