How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Taiko was so fun! I'd heard about it for years, but never had the opportunity to go. It's a modern take on traditional Japanese drumming on gigantic kettle drums. The energy of the troupe was infectious and their precision was amazing! Even my drummer fiancee was impressed, and he likes to play it cool. The pieces were all very different: some were pure drumming, some involved a bit of modern dance, and a few brought in some tongue-in-cheek humor. It was great, and I'm totally going again. Hear that, Goldstar?! Keep it up for Portland Taiko!
