Kaji-Daiko (Japanese Taiko)

The UNI Taiko Ensemble - "Kaji-Daiko" - made its debut on September 26, 2008 at the UNI School of Music Russell Re-dedication and the Scholarship Benefit Concert in the newly renovated Bengtson Auditorium. The ensemble plays on thirteen hand-made drums from www.taikos.com - shime-daikos, okedo-daikos, katsugi-daikos, and a five-foot hira-daiko.  Each year the ensemble presents three concerts in Davis Hall, and has performed for WCFSO Lollipop Concerts, Iowa Percussive Arts Society Days of Percussion, the President’s Club, and the UNI Foundation’s “Imagine the Impact” campaign kickoff.
