Hibikiya x Totemo Japan Collab: Fun with Taiko Basic!


Taiko (太鼓) is a traditional type of drum native to Japan. In warring eras, the moving thump of the drum was used to bolster warriors' morales, set marching paces and relay orders. Taiko drums have also been used in traditional arts like Noh and Gagaku, as well as in festivals in Japan!

As the only formal Taiko school in Singapore, Hibikiya was founded by Namiko Sakai with the purpose of diffusing traditional Japanese culture to a wider audience. With over 20 years of experience in Taiko, Namiko Sakai has grown Hibikiya into a top Taiko school, receiving a multitude of invitations to perform at grand scale events, such as this one at Gardens by the Bay:

Totemo Japan has the rare opportunity to collaborate with Hibikiya to present you "Fun with Taiko Basic!" - a beginner workshop for everyone who wants to experience this unique part of Japan traditional culture first hand. This is an exclusive session only for Totemo Japan's members, and we've worked hard to bring you a 20% discount off their normal price of S$35! Limited seats available due to constraints of their space, so get your tickets soon before they run out ;)

After 2 hours of intense drumming, we will proceed for dinner together
at nearby Meld Grilled Kitchen to replenish our energy! :D

Note: This session is mainly for adults. Children above 10 years old can join us, but must be accompanied by a guardian if he/she is below 15. Please come in sports/comfortable attire and bring your water bottle as the workout may be pretty intense ;)
