We are Taiko Ren: “taiko” for the Japanese style of drumming, combining dynamic movement and percussion; and “ren,” meaning a close-knit collaborative group.


Taiko Ren, based in the San Francisco Bay Area, has been drumming collectively since 2000, when we came together with training and performance experience from San Francisco Taiko Dojo and other organizations. We have performed at festivals, community and school events, corporate shows and private events.


Together, we explore and create a positive, expressive style of music, bring this powerful art form to diverse audiences and play for the sheer joy of drumming.
