Annual Intercollegiate Taiko Invitationals

It’s almost time for the Annual Intercollegiate Taiko Invitationals!

This year will mark the 19th event, which will be hosted by our friends at UCSD, Asayake Taiko.  The first invitationals was held in Stanford, CA among the three first collegiate taiko groups: Stanford Taiko, UCLA’s Kyodo Taiko, and UCI’s Jodaiko.  Now, there are 14 groups, some coming as far as Oregon!

There will be two free concerts, which are open to the public.

We are looking forward to expanding our taiko knowledge, meeting new and old friends, and just having a fun, taiko-filled weekend!…

Block Party 2012

Hi Everyone!

This is Audrey Tu, the Performance Director of Senryu Taiko, here to talk about our participation at Block Party 3 weeks ago!

On Friday, October 2, Senryu Taiko had the honor of being the opening for the set of student organization performances on the stage by the Bell Tower that evening. In addition to our performance, Collective Faction and 909 Hip Hop performed on the big stage. With a small team of 6, we performed Nano Hana, Ichi Ji, and Mukashi Mukashi— Oh! In fact, that performance of Ichi Ji was the first for a few of our “newbies.” Congratulations! You guys have grown so much. Also, we’d like to thank everyone who watched and cheered for our performance. The energy of the crowd was great and encouraged us to give it our all!

In addition to performing, we also tabled for the event, along with many other student orgs. Since we set up early, we reserved a space that had a lot of foot traffic—Score! Thank you to everyone who visited our table! It was a great pleasure to talk to you all.

We hope to see you all again!…
