In Japan, the word Taiko is used for a drum. In North America the word also is used to describe the art of kumidaiko, or ensemble drumming with Japanese drums. The SJT musicians presented each exciting Taiko piece with energy bouncing off the drums and through the drummers perfectly choreographed movements. In between musical numbers, the history of the group, the art and each number were explained to the attentive crowd.

The San Jose group brought their art to the Wells Fargo Center as a part of the Clover Stornetta Family Fun Series. The Family Fun Series is a collection of shows designed for families with many opportunities and inspirations for learning. Shows in this series begin with a pre-party in the lobby an hour before the show starts and include refreshments and arts and crafts tables.

The next performance in the series is the Peking Acrobats on Tuesday January 15th, 2013. The Chinese tumblers, gymnasts, jugglers, and contortionists will begin at 6:30, however plan on arriving early for the pre-show events. Also in the line-up are ERTHS Dinosaur Petting Zoo, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, The Gruffalo, Beauty and the Beast and Milkshake.
