Somei Taiko


Somei Taiko, based at the Soto Mission of Aiea, in the heart of Aiea, Hawaii, was founded by Shuji & Jaymie Komagata of Hawaii Matsuri Taiko. With a combined 50-plus years of taiko experience, they began Somei Taiko in November, 2005, to share with their students the dynamic art of taiko, to train and to perform with great energy and spirit. Today, over 70 students of varied backgrounds ranging in age from 4 years to adult make up Somei Taiko.

Somei Taiko will perform for about 1/2 an hour starting at 1:30pm on the Main Stage. Click here for a complete schedule.
