AMU-012: Zakuro-Daiko, The Union College Japanese Drumming Ensemble
The Union College Taiko Ensemble was established in 2007 under the leadership of resident ethnomusicologist Jennifer Milioto Matsue with the goal of bringing Japanese music and culture to life on campus. Shortly after its establishment, students agreed to call the group “Zakuro Daiko,” which translates as “Garnet Drums.” The group performs a type of Japanese ensemble drumming that is popular in Japan and throughout the world. Look for our concerts on campus and in the surrounding community!!
