Taiko West drummers are holding free drumming workshops at FestivalAsia, London’s largest festival about all things Asian incorporating everything from food, fashion, music and performance to yoga, martial arts and meditation, which takes place at Tobacco Dock from Friday May 15th to Sunday May 17th.

The unique three-day spectacular of FestivalAsia boasts exhibitors and performances along with a cultural room, a spiritual room and children’s entertainment. There is something to suit all tastes at FestivalAsia, which embraces the amazing diversity of Asian arts & cultures from some of the countries making up this intriguing and eclectic continent.

Taiko West was set up by James Barrow, who studied Taiko in Japan for four years. James co-led the UK’s first hands-on drumming course which culminated in a performance at WOMAD. Players of high-energy Taiko drumming often report the experience as joyful, exhilarating and energizing, especially in a group setting. Research also points to improvements in health and well-being.
