The heart of Japanese drumming in Calgary
WHO WE ARE
We are Midnight Taiko, a non-profit Japanese Taiko drumming performance group in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Founded in 2006, we perform at large, small, and private events in Calgary and beyond. We hold classes and workshops to share our passion for drumming with our community.
WHAT WE OFFER
Our mission is to learn, preserve, and promote Taiko in Calgary and beyond. We do this through:
We perform at public and private events, festivals, parades, in-person and online concerts, and a variety of public spaces. We collaborate with diverse visual and music groups to bring Taiko to life in new and unique ways.
Our workshop participants learn about the history of Taiko and gain a foundation in Japanese drumming, various playing styles, choreography, and traditional pieces. We offer Beginner and Intermediate workshops, and a fun, casual Taiko Hour.
