Taiko in Reno began 20 years ago when Rieko Shimbo brought the performance and drumming tradition to the Biggest Little City from Tokyo, where she was born.

She moved to Reno in 1994 and is a teacher at the Mountain View Montessori School.

Reno Taiko has been growing ever since. Shimbo’s passion, as well as the mission of this group, is to introduce people to the rich culture of Japan by sharing this art form as well as to create a feeling of community through the music.

The group practices every Monday at 7 p.m. at Mountainview Montessori school. Reno Taiko is open to anyone regardless of skill level. Visit RenoTaiko.com for information.
