Yamabiko Taiko is a local Taiko drumming group in Kelowna, BC. The word Yamabiko means “Mountain Echo” in Japanese and the group does regular performances at public events such as Taste of Japan.
Yamabiko Taiko began with very humble and simple desires: purely to enjoy and play Japanese Taiko-style drums and be lost in their power and grace. Most performances are held in the Okanagan region of BC. Practices are held on Monday and Thursday evenings in the basement of the Kelowna Buddhist Temple.
