On March 3, 2018, we could done 4th Bellevue World Taiko Festival with special guest Miyake Taiko from Japan.

This festival has realized our hope : to make opportunities to enjoy Japanese culture in Seattle, US, build new relationships up through Taiko and other percussion and show the Japanese spirits & mind by the sounds and movement.  We really appreciate the community and Taiko & Music lovers who support our dream since 2014.

In the both concerts of matinee and evening, the audience enjoyed Miyake 's rhythm with hand clapping and "Wassioi!"  Finale with Taiko groups and drum line which based in Seattle was perfect fusion of the world and show the new bond through the music

Thank you for your support and hope see you 5th Bellevue World TAIKO Festival!
