DRACO TAIKO at the Museu Etnològic i de Cultures del Món of Barcelona, in the Sherpa Sonor Cycle
On June 28 we played in the beautiful patio of the Museum with an impressive acoustics! This year the Cicle Sherpa Sonor has invited us to perform at the Museu Etnològic i de Cultures del Món and at the Jaume Fuster Library, on July 3 at 7pm.
Draco Taiko is a group of taiko in Spain of 12 people. Located within the Lotus Blau Foundation. Its story begins at a Zen meditation retreat where, besides the practices of Sumie, Shodo and Zazen, it was decided to introduce Taiko (first playing with big plastic olive jars) as a form of contemplative art and to stimulate the participants, so they would not get sleepy during meditation. Such was the success that a week later David Urgeles, current director of the Lotus Blau Foundation, opened inscriptions for those who were interested in forming a group. There were 13 people and Draco Taiko came true.
All the funds raised by Draco Taiko are entirely intended for the Lotus Blau Foundation, with the exception of the expenses implied in each performance.
