In Japanese, Kenshin means 'dedicated', and Taiko means 'drum', and we here at Kenshin Taiko are dedicated to keeping this wonderful tradition alive in SLC. Taiko drumming has often been called the heartbeat of Japan, and has been used for religious events and to celebrate various festivals dating back over 2000 years ago. Kenshin Taiko was started in 1995 by The Japanese Church of Christ. For many years, Kenshin has been a community group; open to the public. This makes us very diverse; our 30 plus members ranging in age, occupation and background. Our youngest player started at 7 years old, and is now 16! With the Japanese Church of Christ shut down to the public during the pandemic for safety, we have been playing in public parks, and now, with the Utah Arts Alliance Theater. We are excited to be performing again, and are so happy to be here with you today!
