King Island Taiko Drumming
Through Rural Health Week A new musical group has been established on King Island with assistance from Rural Health Week and KI Regional Health Services. Maria Perez-Pulido from Burnie provided expert guidance in drum making, leadership and Taiko Drumming. Our group has formed by popular demand following the Youth Week Taiko Drumming workshops this year. 16 King Islander's committed many hours of strenuous mental and physical hours to get our group established. We recieved overwhelming support from both the Hobart and Burnie Taiko Drimming Groups and look forward to the day in the not too distant future when we can all perform together. Watch out for us over the summer months practicing in the shade and performing at local events.
