Join this live teaching session with Ingmar (Kion Dojo) and Mel from the Taiko Bastards.

Language is English (with some German thrown in here and there).

Ingmar (Ingu) Kikat has been playing and teaching taiko for twenty years. His school Kion Dojo in Hamburg has been playing a vital role in spreading melodic and groovy taiko, inspired by the great Kaoly Asano from GOCOO/Tokyo, throughout Germany and Europe. As a sought after workshop leader and a member of the new unheard of project Taiko Bastards, he brings taiko drumming to the next level. In this session he will be teaching Melski, another „Bastard“ and taiko maniac, as a role model for all other participants in how to groove and flow on the taiko!
