Are you a founding or co-founding member of a taiko group? Reply to this discussion or send an email to Mel@eurotaikoexpo with the story of how and why your group came to exist!
It takes a certain something to cross the line from "I wish there was a group for this", to "I'm going to make that group myself!". Sharing your story with the community can give other players insight into what it takes to start and maintain a group from scratch, and may just inspire someone else to make that jump themselves. Every group's origin is as unique as the players themselves - and there's no story too boring 🙂
The aim: To start building a library of information about the taiko groups that exist/ed across Europe, which is told through interesting-to-read, personal stories written by member/s of the groups themselves - no hearsay, just experience. And of course, to collect a bunch of interesting taiko stories to be published (and perhaps displayed) as part of the ETE21!!!
This this is just one of many community initiated projects which will pop up during the year - get involved, share your voice! 😁
By posting your story, you give permission for us to reproduce it in conjunction with the ETE21.
Stories in your native language are welcome, and may be reproduced in original language and/or as a translation, depending on our resources
