NITARO HIROBE

Hobby: Iaido, judo, calligraphy, pottery, ski, mountain climbing, oil painting, graphic design. My favorite styles of taiko playing are Mitsu-uchi, Minakuchi-bayashi, Yatai-bayashi, Hachijo-taiko - the kind of taiko that are performed at festivals around various regions of Japan. I was inspired to start playing taiko when I saw a modern taiko performance. As I learned more, I was intrigued by the complex ancient rhythm, wide range of expression created by simple instruments, and ensemble possibilities with other instruments like flute and gongs. I also learned how taiko contributed to improve communication within communities while I studied taiko style from various regions. I believe taiko has the power to make everyone smile. Please come and experience the wonderful Japanese tradition, taiko!
