As a GPI’s Annual Seminar Series in the spring of 2016, GPI invited Tsukasa Taiko to Korean Cultural Center of Chicago where GPI is located on Sunday, June 12. Tsukasa’s Gintenkai members demonstrated various episodes of taiko drumming with explanations about each episode, which resulted in giving us a better understanding of taiko drumming. It was such a meaningful and fun experience to all of us.
This event was also part of our cultural exchange that initiated last year when GPI’s SoriBeat went to visit Tsukasa Taiko’s place in Chicago. As a next step, we already look forward to future collaboration by drumming together.
We will see and play drums together for Project UL-SSI-GU in Chicago, which will be held on Sunday, August 14 at 5 pm, Wrigley Squire in downtown Chicago.
