Onibana Taiko · 鬼束太鼓

Formed in 2016, Onibana Taiko are three veterans of Vancouver’s Taiko community whose performance presentations draw from Japanese folk rituals such as minyo and matsuri all with a touch of punk aesthetics. Through performance, Onibana allows audience members to commune with our ancestors via obon dance, song, sensu (fan) cheerleading, fue, shamisen and kick-ass taiko. The group is comprised of Kage, Noriko Kobayashi and Leslie Komori.
