There will be two stages used for Entertainment during the festival. There will be other entertainment besides Taiko. There will be martial arts demonstrations, along with traditional Japanese music and dancing. So come and join us so we all can enjoy the beat and celebrate the coming of Spring!
They have also posted the schedule:
Wadaiko Newark Taiko, who starts the day, is the dojo chriso and I belong too.
You might see us moving drums or working the table, but we don't perform in public.
Come join the fun, food, and support your friends! Pass the info. The more the merrier!
(*) "Festival" is of course redundant as Matsuri means festival
