Arts, Culture & Fun: Taikoza Concert at Highbridge Park

Join NYC Parks for three special concerts featuring Taikoza. They have created a new sound using the thunderous rhythms of the ancestral Taiko drums and the magical sounds of the bamboo flutes. Roughly translated, Taiko means “big drums” – and that’s exactly what Taikoza brings: big drums, powerful rhythms, and electrifying, room-thumping energy. This exciting group draws from Japan’s rich tradition of music and performance to create a highly visual performance.  This event is FREE and open to the public.
