Taiko Lab features new works-in-progress by Rick Shiomi, Iris Shiraishi, Jennifer Weir, and Angie Ahlgren - all members of Mu's taiko drumming ensemble, Mu Daiko. The energetic and mesmerizing experience of taiko blends physical movement and intricate drumming and rhythm in an unforgettable display. Unlike the usual "bang" fest, however, Taiko Lab focuses on the experimental and unexpected work featuring stylistic variety and pizzazz! (Not your usual taiko concert!) Guest artists and collaborators include Alex Lubert (guitar) and Susie Kuniyoshi (flute).
