The 31st Annual Arizona Matsuri was a blast! Odaiko Sonora performed an energetic, fun set Saturday morning. Then six of our players joined the massive All AZ Taiko Team for a thunderous set of songs shared by over ten taiko groups!

Our spring All Ages Recreational Class starts this coming weekend, Feb. 28! Register below via Paypal, or email info@tucsontaiko.org for more information. Try taiko on for size this year. You first class is free!
