Portland Taiko Free Events – October 21st
Portland Taiko would like to cordially invite you to join us to celebrate the history, power and people of the drum!
A Collaboration with the Obo Addy Legacy Project (Ghanaian drum & dance ensemble), Medicine Bear (Native American Drum & Dance Ensemble), Mehixa Tiahui (Aztec Drum & Dance Ensemble), Portland Taiko (Asian-American Drum Ensemble) & Muralist Rodolfo Serna.
It’s time to celebrate the universal voice of the drum! The drum beats throughout the history and traditions of many cultures, this special event invites you to join in the celebration of that rhythm. Four local drum and performance ensembles will share their individual traditions and songs, and come together as an extraordinary ensemble.
Muralist Rodolfo Serna will work with local artists to create an onsite mural. We invite all the artists of our community, young and old, to participate in the creation!
You have three opportunities to catch this exceptional show:
July 15 at Director’s Park in downtown Portland
August 19 at the Mt Scott Community Center in SE Portland
October 21 at University Park in North Portland.
