Kenshin Taiko was founded by Laura Olson and Denise Nakashima, as taught by Kirstin Pauca, a member of the Kenny Endo Taiko Dojo in Hawaii. Master Endo has personally come to tutor and perform with us on several occasions.
Various taiko styles exist. Kenshin Taiko tends to be a little more traditional while some of our "cousin" groups are more avant-garde. Our goals include learning, growing together and having fun.
Kenshin Taiko is sponsored by the Japanese Church of Christ in Salt Lake City, whose mission includes preserving and sharing the Japanese culture in our community.
