What does "traditional" taiko mean? What about "contemprary" taiko? Taiko as a genre is't as historical as many people may believe, and it's often not as Japanese as we think either. TaikoSkin discusses with Isaku Kageyama about the perception of modern taiko.
We also answer a reader question about playing taiko in a country were taiko isn't very common.
