Osuwa Taiko drummers come to Parkway for Japanese benefit concert

Mark your calendars! On Friday, April 29, at 7:30 p.m., the St. Louis Osuwa Taiko Drummers are coming to Bellerive Elementary School. This dynamic and exciting group performs annually at the Japanese Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden. 

“Taiko” means “big drum” in Japanese. These drums have been used in Japan for thousands of years. The St. Louis Osuwa Taiko will present a 45-minute concert, followed by a workshop session in which the audience will have the opportunity to try the drums. Visit their website at http://www.stltaiko.com/.

The concert is free and open to the public. Monetary donations will be collected for the Japanese people affected by the earthquake and tsunami. Please plan to come and bring your family and friends!
