TAO’s stage is created through phenomenal performances and expressions consisting of incomparable “Wadaiko-drums” and the beautiful mesmerizing melody of Japanese flutes and harps. It is the “Japanese entertainment” for a new generation that completely surpasses expectations.
In 2017, their major recording debut with Universal Music was a compilation of their work over the past 25 years. It ranked as one of the top three in the iTunes World Album Ranking in five different countries. In 2018, they performed in the opening ceremony of “Japonism 2018” in Paris, France. They also co-starred with the Bolshoi Ballet as the opening act of “Japan Year in Russia,” held at The Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, Russia, in front of the head of each country. Additionally, they appeared on the most renowned Japanese music program, “The 69th NHK Kohaku Utagassen,” in 2018.
This performance is supported in part by the Japan Foundation (New York)
and National Endowment for the Arts.
Join us for this month's Kayoubikai! We are looking forward to seeing this time at IKKO in Five Points at 6:30pm.
Held on the second Tuesday of every month, Kayoubikai (or "Tuesday gathering") is an opportunity to meet new friends with similar interests, practice Japanese, and stay connected with other members of the JASA community.

We meet at 6:30pm at a local Japanese restaurant.
Please RSVP in advance. There is no cost for registration, but each guest will be responsible for their own ticket at the end of the meal.
Our meetings thus far have been held in Birmingham, but we would love to expand to other cities! If you would like us to host a Kayoubikai in your area, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
