Kenny Endo Contemporary Taiko – 45th Anniversary Tour: Breaking Through Tradition to Innovation

Celebrating his 45th Anniversary in Taiko, Kenny Endo stands at the vanguard of the taiko genre. For 45 years, he has led the way in the U.S. for this Japanese style of drumming, and was the first non-national to be honored with a “natori,” a stage name, in Japan. As a jazz percussionist and award-winning innovator in Japanese taiko, Kenny Endo embodies the history of taiko in the U.S. and his adventurous spirit continues to stretch the genre, incorporating such influences as funk, jazz, Afro-Cuban & Hawaiian, with roots firmly grounded in tradition. His performances are nuanced, brilliant, exciting! Raves a recent presenter, “the concert was absolutely amazing....a modern approach to percussion that I believe is unique in the world today.”
