Creative Crossroads: Taiko Traditions

"Creative Crossroads" is our new initiative for the Summer Entertainment: Live @ The Rog concert series. We will continue to feature a different world region each week, now with the goal of illustrating similarities and differences across cultures through comparable performance styles. (For example, compare the drumming styles of West Africa, Japanese Taiko, and Caribbean steel drum music.) In addition, the former Mosquito Bluegrass Jam will be replaced with the broader theme of "Made in America." This will give us the opportunity to feature a wider assortment of performance styles originating in the United States.
