Summer Series - Oto-Wa Taiko

Presented by: Shenkman Arts Centre Presents in partnership with the Heart of Orléans BIA

Thursday, July 18 at 12:30 pm

Join us for a weekly dose of fun at our summer lunchtime series. These free concerts will take place at 12:30 pm every Thursday in July and August.

Oto-Wa Taiko has been bringing the dynamic sights and sounds of Japanese drumming (taiko) to public and private events and schools in Ottawa and surrounding areas since 1989. The group's name consists of two Japanese characters oto (sound) and wa (harmony). The character wa symbolizes the harmony of spirit among the players and with their taiko as they make joyous sounds together.
