We’re bringing Sawagi Taiko to Terrace!
Learn how to play taiko drums in this fun 1 day workshop with the all-woman group Sawagi Taiko!
We are so happy to be collaborating to bring Sawagi Taiko from Vancouver to Terrace. Sawagi Taiko is the first all-women's taiko group in Canada, formed in 1990. We would like to start a recreational taiko group here in Terrace, and are looking for energetic, positive, and collaborative people to join us!

THE FUTURE OF SAWAGI TAIKO
Sawagi Taiko continues the historical and cultural connections amongst different Asian cultures - the instrument originated in China; the artistic form originated in the rural communities of Japan. The members of the group are of Chinese and Japanese ancestry. We explore our different ancestral legacies in our art form and our pieces reflect our diverse experiences as East Asian Canadian women.
