Taiko Drum is the performance arm of the TUUTS, and can be seen at a wide variety of multicultural events and community festivals around Tasmania. We run a schools visit program each year, and also hold public drumming workshops, and perform at corporate and private functions. 'Taiko' in Japan means 'drum'. Around the world, taiko is fast becoming synonymous with powerful performance and the tremendous energy it exudes. 'Drum', pronounced Dora-Mu in Japanese, was given the kanji reading of 'tiger dream', representing the uniquely Tasmanian story of the loss of our local icon, the thylacine. The presence of its spirit still holds a powerful place in our identity and respects the indigenous custodians of this land. Our website is at http://www.taikodrum.com
