Feel the beat of Japanese Taiko! This ancient art form is brought to life in the 21st century through an international collaboration of the taiko in Japan, Canada, and Minnesota.

Ensō Daiko, a resident company of TaikoArts Midwest, offers loud, energetic performances that combine music, dance, culture, and pure athleticism. The group regularly premieres new work adding their unique voice to the expanding canon and innovation of North American taiko. Through performances, studio classes and school residencies, Ensō Daiko has taught thousands of students of all ages and abilities.

The mission of TaikoArts Midwest is to "develop, produce, and promote artistic excellence in taiko performance, using taiko as a way to strengthen and build community in the Midwest." A frequent Ordway collaborator, TaikoArts Midwest is featured in the documentary film "Finding Her Beat", which chronicles their preparations for a historic performance at the Ordway in February 2020.

Taiko is a combination of rhythm, dance, and culture that is exciting, inspiring, and joyful- come feel the beat!
