San Jose Taiko has a simple and singular mission: enrich the human spirit. Connect people beyond cultural and demographic boundaries. With a profoundly deep respect of cultural traditions, as well as a commitment to artistic excellence, SJT is dedicated to the advancement of the taiko art form through the development of both its world-class Performing Ensemble and the San Jose Taiko Conservatory.
San Jose Taiko's long-term vision is to establish a Taiko Conservatory, which would be the first of its kind in the United States, and to serve as a national resource for this vibrant Asian American art form. Through the Taiko Conservatory, San Jose Taiko is committed to providing professional development opportunities, technical assistance, and a comprehensive array of support and information about North American Taiko both to individuals and organizations around the world. As the art form of taiko continues to evolve, the San Jose Taiko Conservatory will be dedicated to fulfilling the needs of the ever-expanding taiko community. For More: http://www.taiko.org/
