Intercollegiate Taiko Conference 2012 @ Stanford University

Jishin Taiko has come home to Northridge from Stanford after a fun, exciting weekend at ITC! We were able to bring back new techniques, ideas, and inspiration from the classes, build and strengthen our connections with others in the taiko community, and have a great time watching and performing taiko. Thank you, Stanford Taiko, for having us, and to everyone who attended, we hope to see you again next year!
