Prior to joining Midnight Taiko Kai, Jigme was searching for a percussion instruments to learn in Calgary. When he first heard Midnight play at the annual Omatsuri festival in Calgary he immediately joined Midnight’s Taiko Hour. He feels that aside from the power of the drums it was the positive vibe of the group that he felt inclined to join.
Jigme was first exposed to learning music at a young age, when he attended school in Nepal. But it was only after playing with Midnight that he rediscovered his past experience with music and dance. He is hopeful that he will continue playing Taiko for as long as his body allows it and is eager to learn more and create new music with Taiko.
