Who we are

Stanford Taiko is Stanford University’s resident taiko ensemble. With over 30 years of history, we aim to spread the art of Japanese ensemble drumming to the local community.


Watch last year’s spring concert on Youtube here! (It sounds even better in-person, so you should consider buying tickets to this year’s or signing up for our mailing list.)

Spring Concert 2024

Our next Spring Concert, “Jam!”, took place on Saturday, May 4, 2024 at 7:30 pm in Bing Concert Hall. Subscribe to our Youtube channel for when we release professional recordings of it this summer!
