WHAT IS TAIKO TEN? Taiko Ten is a casual concert that provides performance opportunities for organizations in attendance at the North American Taiko Conference (NATC). Beginning with NATC 2003 in Sacramento, CA, Taiko Ten continues to be a pillar of the NATC schedule with new themes and interpretations each year.

The Taiko Community Alliance is celebrating the 50th anniversary of taiko in North America across the 2018-2019 year and is pleased to present the theme of COLLABORATION for the latest installment of Taiko Ten. If your taiko group has an interesting collaboration to share with the NATC audience, please consider submitting an application to perform in Taiko Ten! Collaboration examples include joint performances with other taiko groups, instruments other than taiko, other art forms such as dance, spoken word, etc. The possibilities are endless!
