In the months leading up to the 2021 Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire, we will be featuring the Makers that will be appearing at the Faire!

Today’s Feature: Lyco Taiko

Lyco Taiko and DIY drums

Engage with taiko! A centuries-old tradition throughout Japan, since the 1950s taiko, has become an international activity, spreading even to the Susquehanna Valley. Watch local drummers perform repertoire in the Tokyo-style, and try it for yourself!

The members of Lyco Taiko will present a small performance of Japanese taiko (folk drumming), provide a chance for attendees to try it themselves, and show off our home-made “practice drums”.

Brief background of Lyco Taiko and the founder:

“Lyco Taiko brings traditional Japanese drumming to Bloomsburg! We will play traditional and contemporary pieces, and even invite members of the audience to try itfor themselves.

Founded in 2015, Lyco Taiko has performed and given workshops in and around the Susquehanna Valley ever since. Specializing in Tokyo-style taiko, this group is a must-see!”
