Yume Japanese Gardens presents: KEN KOSHIO – A Taiko Drumming Performance on Saturday, January 8 from 3pm to 6pm.
Ken Koshio is a multi-faceted artist who specializes in Taiko, the ancient art form of Japanese drumming. He is also a Japanese folk artist, a singer and a songwriter. The mission of Ken Koshio is to resonate with all individuals and all things in the universe, using the rhythm of taiko to co-exist in the universe through the synergy of our human heartbeats. He pursues a peaceful world while transcending borders through the healing power of ancient sounds and music.
