Stanford Taiko Spring Concert: Harmonic Convergence with Kenny Endo - Now on sale!

Saturday, May 7, 2022 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Bing Concert Hall

Harmonic Convergence is a collaborative concert with taiko master Kenny Endo celebrating both Stanford Taiko's 30th anniversary and Kenny Endo's 45th anniversary in taiko!

Stanford Taiko is an ensemble of approximately 20 students with an all-original repertoire. Members are selected through a rigorous one-month audition process that commences at the beginning of each academic year. The group performs regularly at major university events and has gained international recognition through its program of regular touring.

Kenny Endo is at the vanguard of the taiko genre, continually paving new paths for this Japanese style of drumming. A performer, composer, and teacher of taiko with numerous awards and accolades, he is a consummate artist, blending Japanese taiko with rhythms influenced from around the world into original melodies and improvisation. Endo is arguably one of the most versatile musicians in the genre, crossing easily between the classical Japanese style and his own neo-traditional, globally-inspired variety.
