Taiko is the Japanese word for ‘drum’, but it is also the art of Japanese drumming combining rhythm, movement, and spirit. The sound of the Taiko could be heard as part of everyday Japanese life for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years. Its origins lie deeply embedded in Japanese culture.
Hiro & Mayu Akiba are passionate about sharing their Japanese culture and promoting cultural diversity. As the organisers of Byron Bay's annual Japanese Festival, they have also been touring local schools and teaching Taiko in the Byron Bay community since 2012.
Byron Taiko are available to host private functions and events - offering Japanese themed catering, authentic decor styling, music, meditation, and professional Taiko performance.
