East Coast Taiko Conference is the gathering of all taiko players to celebrate their love for taiko, share their diverse skills and styles, facilitate collaborations, attend workshops, learn and strengthen the East Coast taiko community.

The conference was started in 2011, hosted by Yamatai in Cornell University. Over 100 students from taiko teams of universities across the region congregated for a weekend of taiko workshops, discussion sessions, and performances. Last year, Gendo hosted the Eastern Taiko Conference at Brown University. More taiko lovers came together to share the same passion and build on the relationship. This year, SkiDaiko from Skidmore College will help and continue to foster the taiko community on the East Coast.

Please join us at Skidmore on Friday, February 7th – Sunday, February 9th, 2014!
