CALDWELL, ID- Witness the drama and artistry of Portland Taiko, an Asian-American drumming ensemble, on Wednesday, May 8 at 7:30 p.m. in Jewett Auditorium.

The concert will display the power of the Japanese drum, the subtlety of the violin and bamboo flute, the beauty of choreographed movement and the laughter of storytelling.

Their performances echo Japanese tradition derived from centuries-old religious ceremonies, court music and community folk festivals.
