Senryu Taiko is one of the earliest intercollegiate taiko groups to ever form in the United States. Self-taught and self-sustained, the club continues the tradition of kumidaiko by writing music together, teaching incoming members, and forming ties with other collegiate taiko groups across the nation.

ENERGY. SOUND. EXCITEMENT.
Did you know that Senryu is available for performances throughout the year? We've been in Downtown Riverside events such as Lunar Festival and Ghostwalk and we even get invited to play at Anime Expo! We've also done gigs for local schools and charities and are open to perform at private events. If interested, feel free to contact us for more information!
As our year comes to a slow end, the Board is slowly transitioning from old to new. Welcome to our next Board and we wish you the best!

In Chinese art, the “Four Noble Ones” are flowers (the plum blossom, chrysanthemum, bamboo, and orchid) that reflect the four seasons. Following the same flow of the changing seasons, Senryu Taiko has gone through significant changes this year. As a culmination of the progress made, Senryu Taiko proudly presents “The Four Noble Drums.”

Hello Senryu fans!
My name is Chelsey Calingo and I am the current Historian for the 2015-2016 year. I hope you like the new look of our website!
With the new website, we hope to bring you more content! Everything is also completely mobile friendly, so if you ever get the urge to see what performances we have in our lineup you can easily pull out your phone and check out our Performance Schedule. We’ve also added a new page on how to become a member of Senryu under the Members tab if you’ve ever been interested.
However, the website is still in the process of being updated, as you will see if you look under our Board of Directors and Core Members page. Our group has been very busy with school and so we have yet to find the time to update our roster for this 2015-2016 year! So keep checking back and I hope you continue to enjoy Senryu Taiko!
