TAKOHACHI

Takohachi was founded in 2007 as a non profit organization to preserve DENTOU GEINOU or Traditional Japanese Music and Dance. Takohachi seeks to educate and entertain as we perform throughout the Portland area at schools, festivals and cultural events. 
 
Their repertoire includes songs in the modern Kumi Daiko style, popular amongst Taiko troupes in the US, as well as many songs in the traditional Dentou Geinou style of ancient Japan. This strong presence of traditional style Taiko is what makes Takohachi so unique amongst American Taiko troupes.
