New Taiko Music History Article: Gendai ni Ikiru

We’re happy to announce the release of a new?Taiko Music History article!

This time, we’re exploring “Gendai ni Ikiru,” composed by Gary Tsujimoto for San Jose Taiko?in 1978. In this article, we explore the jazz influences within this SJT standard, and how it “joins the traditional rhythms of Japanese drumming with other world rhythms, including African, Brazilian, Filipino, Latin, and jazz, bridging many styles, while still resonating with the Asian soul in America.”
