Triangle Taiko had the pleasure of playing at the beautiful NCSU’s Historic Chancellor’s Residence on Thursday, April 3rd. Our performance was to help celebrate the Gregg Museum Art and Design’s current exhibition on display, Remnants of the Floating World: Japanese Art from the Permanent Collection. REMNANTS OF THE FLOATING WORLD draws upon the treasures of the Gregg’s permanent collection to present an exhibition of Japanese ceramics, textiles, and 19th century color woodblock prints (ukiyo-e, 浮世絵 , literally “pictures of the floating world”).

Also, note our new happi. Pretty, aren’t they?

Well, the Special Taiko workshop ended with a fantastic performance at the Five Points Center for Active Adults. It’s amazing how well everyone learned “Twinkle Twinkle” in only 4 weeks. Thanks to all the players for joining us; thanks to all the family and friends who came out for their performance; and thanks to Raleigh Parks and Rec for giving us the time and space to have the workshop and the recital.
