Welcome - Irasshai Mase!

Since 1987, Burlington Taiko has been mesmerizing audiences with the powerful, spellbinding and propulsive sounds of the taiko. Burlington Taiko Group estimates it has introduced over half a million people to the power of taiko via public performances including feature performances at the 100th running of the Boston Marathon, annual performances at Burlington's First Night, the Joseph Campbell - Keepers of the Lore festival, the Black Ships Festival in Newport, Rhode Island, and over 200 corporate, collegiate and public performances.

Burlington Taiko Group and Burlington Taiko Youth Ensemble are subsidiaries of Taiko Aikokai New England, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
