This taiko group from Matsukawa, Japan is touring the US on a “thank you” tour for support Americans shared in the months after last year’s March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The Japanese Consulate in Denver invited the group to play a few songs at a memorial reception to mark the first anniversary of the disaster. We couldn’t make the concerts in Colorado Springs and Denver, so we were glad to get to see Kyougaku live at the Botanic Gardens during the memorial reception. They were amazing!
