Taikoza is a Wellington based Taiko Drumming performance group, dedicated to keeping the sounds and spirit of Taiko alive in the Wellington Region. The group was originally formed in Hiroshima in the mid 1980’s and has been based in Wellington since 1991. Since then it has performed at countless festivals and events throughout New Zealand like Synthony, the re-opening of St James Theatre and Blossom Valley and they regularly appear at the Harbourside Market.

Most of the rhythms played by Taikoza were learned from Hiroshima’s Taiko Hozonkai, which include rhythms that have been played for hundreds or even thousands of years.
