Odaiko Sonora is Tucson’s Japanese taiko ensemble drumming group. “Taiko” is the word for drum in Japanese, and the ensemble is known for its high-energy performances. Formed in 2002, the group has been a TMY favorite for 18 years, bringing drumming, song, and folk dance in the taiko tradition to the festival. As one might expect, drums were important in Japan’s history: as communication, entertainment and in spiritual practice. Modern taiko, however, dates back to the 1950s and developed almost simultaneously post World War II Japan and North America. Odaiko Sonora shares the artform with over 120,000 people every year through classes, performances, school residencies, team building and master workshops, and by producing concerts by internationally acclaimed taiko artists.

You can view this event live on the TMY homepage or later on our TMY Videos 2020 page. To interact with others during the live streaming, you can watch on TMY’s Facebook page or TMY’s YouTube Channel. You can also catch it on-screen during Tucson Eat Yourself weekends.
