For most, the new year begins January 1. Odaiko Sonorans have the additional milestone of AZ Matsuri in Phoenix. This year, we played one of our favorite songs with friends Phoenix Taiko Ka in their set, and invited them to join us on Soma in our set. We love this special weekend of sharing the love of taiko with other Arizona players!

Our current beginners' class runs March 3 through April 7. Register below via Paypal, email info@tucsontaiko.org, or call (520) 481-8003.
