So, I promised 12 weeks and there will be 12 weeks! But, for right now I need to take a bit of a break from the Taiko Challenge drills in order to focus on some real-life taiko fun. :)
My group here in Hong Kong, ODaiko, is performing this coming week as part of the Hong Kong World Cultures Festival. The HK Cultural Centre is pairing up world-renowned artists with local artists to present a number of shows that focus on Asian performing arts--including Eitetsu Hayashi!
ODaiko will be playing this Thursday, at 6:15pm in the lobby of the Cultural Centre. It's a free performance, so come if you're here!
US Taiko Road Trip
Also, I'm currently planning a trip for next summer to get to know some taiko groups in the US better! Most likely starting in Boston, I'll be visiting Philadelphia and Atlanta, and hope to visit enough groups to make my way across the United States with a lot of sight-seeing in between. Have ideas for me? Let me know! I'll be blogging about the experience here next August.
So, with the performance coming up and lots of friends visiting Hong Kong, planning the taiko road trip, and trying to write a thesis, I need to take a short intermission from this series of drills. Keep bugging me if I take too long to come back!!
I hope you're all well!
