Minnesota’s First Taiko Festival

Mu Performing Arts gathers together world-class talent for Minnesota’s First Taiko Festival

Mu Performing Arts celebrates Mu Daiko’s 20th anniversary by gathering some of the best taiko talent from Minnesota, the United States, Canada, and Japan to give audiences the opportunity to experience the impact, depth, and diversity of taiko performance as a dynamic musical art form and a cultural heritage that originates from Japan and is practiced around the world.

“This Minnesota Taiko Festival is a dream come true for me. I want to show Minnesota the best of what taiko has to offer. We are bringing together my favorite taiko people in the world, traveling near and far, to help us celebrate 20 years, and launch us into 20 more.” — Jennifer Weir, Mu Daiko Artistic Director

The festival opens with — and repeats as an encore closing event — a concert on the Guthrie’s McGuire Proscenium stage featuring Mu Daiko and spotlighting guest artists. The concert celebrates two decades of Mu Daiko with an all-star guest list, featuring a playlist of Mu Daiko favorites, new compositions, and a commission by Michelle Fujii. You can access the promotional flyer via our website.
