Joe’s first live Taiko experience was watching Yamato perform in Calgary and he fell in love with the art. When his wife Lorie saw Midnight Taiko at Omatsuri and heard they were offering beginner courses, they took the opportunity and signed up. It was an honour to be asked to join Midnight Taiko in 2017. Joe finds Taiko to be a very fun and fulfilling activity. The music, the whole body art and the sense of community is what Joe loves about Taiko.
