On September 18-19, 2015, TAIKOPROJECT will perform an integrated concert with the Chicano rock band Quetzal at 8 p.m. at the Tateuchi Democracy Forum at the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy (across the courtyard from the main Japanese American National Museum building). This will be TAIKOPROJECT’s second collaboration with the Grammy-winning Quetzal. The two groups fused Japanese American drumming and Son Jarocho Mexican folk ballads in a smaller concert in 2004. Their unique collaboration generated international acclaim for TAIKOPROJECT. The upcoming concert is an eagerly anticipated event for many in both the Japanese taiko and Mexican folk attuned communities. It represents years of planning and development on the part of the iconic taiko group, and promises to gain them even greater national and international attention.
