Florida’s Big Drum!
Since our beginning in 1990, Fushu Daiko has practiced joyously on a quest for dynamic wholehearted taiko drumming, understanding, and appreciation in the way of taiko, Japanese culture, and all of life.
Fushu Daiko is made up of many nationalities and backgrounds, yet we have been drawn together by the taiko. Through its vibrations, Fushu Daiko wishes to create a sense of connection in the hearts of those who feel the taiko’s beat.
Our performance brings impact and distinction to any gathering. Based in South Florida, we are available for performances of all scales.
Festivals / Corporate Events / Private Parties / Weddings / School Outreach / Concerts / Educational Workshops / Team building Workshops / Sporting Events / Creative Collaborations / Grand Openings
What is Taiko?
The unmistakable taiko sound has gained acceptance in many musical genres far removed from traditional Japanese music. Taiko drumming is known for its grand drums, dynamically choreographed movements, and powerful driving rhythms.
If you’ve ever been moved by our performance, please help us to continue our mission.
