Abby and I just returned from Burlington Taiko (Vermont) biennial fall taiko festival. It was an afternoon and evening of sharing taiko, teaching and learning new pieces, and the event ended with all participants soloing and playing ji on BTG’s BIG odaiko. We connected with some old friends and met many new ones from O To Wa Taiko, Gendo Taiko, Genki Spark, Odaiko New England, SUNY Pottsdam, and of course, Burlington Taiko. What a fantastic group of folks!

Abby will join MRT advanced beginners. Asa hopes to return as I am able to establish a teens class.
