Irodori Taiko is our teen taiko group that started in 2017. ‘Irodori’ means a harmony of colours and it represents the diversity of this wonderful group of young people.
Taiko provides a unique, nourishing space for self expression, team bonding/building and empowerment for the young people taking part. The impact of participation in the Taiko group to be an increase in self-esteem, confidence and mental health and wellbeing. This can be connected to the experience of learning and playing Taiko, interaction with team members, connection to Japanese culture and feeling part of a bigger Taiko community both locally and globally.
