Summerlin Library

Description

Join Las Vegas Kaminari Taiko for an earthshaking drum concert mixing traditional folkloric songs, contemporary pieces, and original compositions with choreography.

Las Vegas Kaminari Taiko was formed in 1993 by George Goto and Doug Muraoka under the name “Las Vegas Taiko”. George served as the drum maker and Doug was the director. After practicing on tires and building their own drums, LV Taiko became LV Kaminari Taiko because of the impressive thunderous sounds the drums made. As part of the Las Vegas chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League, it is LVKT’s mission to spread the art form of taiko to the Southern Nevada community and celebrate its cultural diversity. Over the past 20+ years, LVKT has performed all over Las Vegas, Henderson, and North Las Vegas at schools, conventions, casinos, and community festivals. LVKT maintains the traditional roots of taiko instruction, while bringing some modern flavor and influence into their music. LVKT consists of students and performers of all ages who are taught and directed by Jennifer Caballero.
