Alvas Showroom Events

Loading Events

Your friendly neighborhood ragtag Japanese drumming ensemble is proud to partner with the Alvas Showroom to present its very first concert showcase!  The sound of the taiko drum has been closely associated with festivals, gatherings, and culture in Japan since the Middle Ages.  We believe in the power of taiko to, even today, illuminate common ground across uncommon boundaries, to forge meaningful and lasting relationships, and to bolster the positive development of both individuals and communities.  To this end, our passion is making inspiring music and sharing it with audiences from diverse communities.

Whether you’re brand new to the world of Japanese drumming or a consummate connoisseur of kumidaiko, we hope that you can find something interesting, compelling, or fun in the set we’ve prepared. Our team possesses a diverse range of musical backgrounds and experiences, from community artists to professional musicians, and we’ve brought in a few returning members to round out our roster and put on an extra-special performance for our family and friends, for the San Pedro music and arts community, and for anyone with even a passing interest in modern taiko drumming.

Again, a big thank you to the folks at the Alvas Showroom for giving us a platform to share our music with the community. We hope to see you there!
