The Los Angeles Taiko Festival is a celebration honoring the pioneers of taiko in America. The Hongo family of taiko would like to express gratitude to Tanaka-sensei for his continued support and tutelage. It is because of Tanaka-sensei that so many taiko groups across America can experience the joy of playing taiko. The Los Angeles Taiko Festival will also earmark the second generation of Hongo taiko with Tomomi Hongo, now leading her father’s groups in Los Angeles.
