Multiple changes for Jishin starting this [school] year...
If you don't follow our social media accounts, we have moved practice room locations! We are now officially stationed in CSUN's theatre building: Nordhoff Hall room 106, with our very own storage space! Thanks to our advisor Joel Mankey and new music department chair Ric Alviso for hooking us up. And don't worry, the theatre building is right next door to the music building so we're not too far.
Also, with all the craziness of our first year hosting the Intercollegiate Taiko Invitionals a couple years ago, we are proud to say it was a success despite the bumps along the way. We apologize on the lag in DVDs due to budget and board changes, but we promise they will be available ASAP! On that note, we are currently working on creating a new website and we will hopefully be adding a feature that allows you to purchase the DVD if you didn't do so after the concerts.
For now, if you would like to keep updated on our activities, please follow us on Facebook: CSUN Jishin Taiko.
Thank you to all our supporters, active members, and alumni that continue to include Jishin in their lives!

Hey everyone! We are performing at the CSUN Cross Cultural Friendship Talent Show TODAY at 6:30 PM at the Grand Salon at CSUN's University Student Union! Hope to see you all there!
On the week of March 23-29, 2014, CSUN Jishin Taiko had gotten involved in several different exciting things! All in one week! First off, on Monday, Jishin hosted Cal Poly Ponoma's Touzan Taiko for a joint practice. On Tuesday, Jishin went to Asano Taiko US in Torrence, CA for an open jam session with visiting collegiate taiko group Stanford Taiko. Finally, on Saturday, Jishin competed in a friendly competition of The Matsuri Crashers Battle: March Madness Edition against UCSD's Asayake Taiko, also at Asano Taiko US in Torrence, CA. Unfortunately, Jishin lost to Asayake. Final score: JISHIN 1-ASAYAKE 3. Go to the videos section of the blog to catch all of the action! Hope you enjoy these awesome vids! On the bright side, Jishin raised a lot of money in that event, over $700! And it all go towards the Intercollegiate Taiko Conference happening at CSUN on Memorial Day Weekend! What a difference one week makes! From all of us at CSUN Jishin Taiko, we just want to say THANK YOU to everyone: Touzan, Stanford, Asayake, the staff at Asano Taiko US, and everyone else who made that week awesome, exciting, and phenomenal for us! We greatly appreciated it!
