Welcome

Hikari Taiko has been together for 30 years, and is based out of the Southeast Japanese School and Cultural Center in Norwalk.  Our name, Hikari, means “brightness” or “light” in Japanese, and it is our wish to express light and energy through our love of taiko playing.  
We strive to keep the traditions of taiko alive through a repertoire of classic and modern rhythmic expressions and movements.  We hope to enlighten our audience to the rich Japanese culture and to promote the understanding of its artistic heritage.
