Since its founding in 1994 by the husband and wife duo Kenny and Chizuko Endo, the Taiko Center of the Pacific has been fostering the art of taiko drumming and a vibrant community of students and performers. These drums take a lot of beatings, which means every two to three years they must take the drums apart and give them a complete rehaul, making repairs and refreshing the cowhide skins. For the New Year, students and their families came together this month to get the job done.
