On Ensemble

Zenshin Daiko’s 18th annual taiko festival concert will start with the 50 members of this impressive Maui group performing some of their favorite pieces and premiering new works written by its members.

Since forming in 1999, Zenshin Daiko has performed in over 900 cultural and community events all over Hawaii and in California, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Texas, Nevada, and Japan.

The second half of the evening will feature On Ensemble from Los Angeles. Established in 2002, On Ensemble is one of the most respected ensembles in the taiko (Japanese drumming) world. Led by childhood friends, Shoji Kameda and Masato (Maz) Baba, On Ensemble is recognized for infusing the powerful rhythms of taiko with a wide range of musical influences from jazz and rock to central Asian overtone singing.

Their fearless musical exploration has expanded the artistic range of the taiko and has taken these ancient instruments into new realms. For more information visit http://onensemble.org/about/.

Zenshin Daiko’s taiko festival is a highlight of Maui’s annual June events and not to be missed!
