When I joined Narukami Taiko in Jan 2015, we were a small group - about 15 members sharing 3 chu (big drums) on Thursday nights.
Our group has continually grown this year as people were introduced to taiko through our open days and performances around town.
We ended the year with about 50 members, classes of different skill levels were offered on 4 separate days of the week and just added the 6th chu to our drum collection (plus an oke drum that we still need to learn how to play).
We are so excited to have our team grow over the year and can't believe we once started from half the amount of drums we have today!
We'll have to get a trailer if we get any more drums, the van is full!!!
