About Senryu Taiko

Making noise since 1998, Senryu Taiko is the fourth intercollegiate taiko group 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.

Uniqlo Taiko Battle 2015

This past Saturday, June 20, 2015, Senryu had the pleasure of being a part of Uniqlo’s Grand Opening College Taiko Battle Event. Many collegiate groups came out to compete including Touzan from Cal Poly, Kazan from USC, Kyodo from UCLA, Asayake from UCSD, Jishin from CSUN, and Jodaiko from UCI.

It is our pleasure to announce that Senryu’s very own Amy Tieu, TJ Kim, Henry Wu, Jason Phan, Kat Morano, and Alexander Oakland brought home first place in this competition!

Great job guys! And great job to all our fellow taiko groups who also made it out to this event! It was fun performing with such talented people!
