Godai(五大）is a japanese philosophy on the creation of the universe formed by the five great elements: Earth(地), Water(水), Fire(火), Wind(風), and the Void(空). Earth represents foundation, Water represents fluidity, Fire represents energy, Wind represents freedom, the Void represents the unknown. Godai not only symbolizes the structure of physical reality, but also Senryu Taiko's individual characteristics.
Senryu Taiko is one of the earliest collegiate taiko groups formed in the United States. From our humble beginnings in the basements with tires for drums, our group has grown in membership, repertoire, and reputation since 1998. Senryu combines traditional hand-made instruments with contemporary understanding of music, embraces the art of taiko as well as its versatility, and pushes forward with passion to perform and create songs anew. With our performances, Senryu aims to spread Japanese culture and the art of taiko throughout UCR, the Riverside Community, and the Inland Empire.
