The Sacramento Taiko Dan is the premiere Japanese drumming ensemble in the greater Sacramento region. Founded in 1989, their performers include community members and an international touring performance team. The combination of renowned drummers and outstanding drums enables them to provide audiences with world-class entertainment. The group has one of the largest collections of traditionally crafted instruments; their drums were created by Asano Taiko of Ishikawa, Japan, one of the premiere taiko builders in the world that has been crafting drums since 1609.

The Sacramento Taiko Dan has toured nationally and internationally, with annual appearances at the California State Fair, San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival, Sacramento Pacific Rim Festival, International Taiko Festival, and at UC Berkeley’s Zellerbach Hall, in addition to performing regularly in the Student Union at Sacramento State. They have collaborated with several artists and arts organizations including the Sacramento Ballet, Sacramento Symphony, Camellia Symphony and poet Julia Conner.
