 Sacramento Taiko Dan 

Sacramento Taiko Dan is the premiere Japanese drumming ensemble in the greater Sacramento region. Founded in 1989, we are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Our performers include community members and an international touring performance team. The combination of renowned drummers and outstanding drums enables us to provide audiences with world-class entertainment.

Sacramento Taiko Dan tours nationally and internationally, with annual appearances at the California State Fair, San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival, Sacramento Pacific Rim Festival, International Taiko Festival, and at UC Berkeley’s Zellerbach Hall. We have collaborated with several artists and arts organizations including the Sacramento Ballet, Sacramento Symphony, Camellia Symphony and poet Julia Conner.
