Eisa Workshop with Chantelle!

1922225_631052196961552_780662526_n Hello friends! We had the honor of bringing back one of our esteemed alumni Chantelle, who is  currently a member of LA Shisa Taiko, to teach us the basics and groove of eisa style drumming! Often appearing like a hybrid between dance and taiko, this form originates in Okinawa, and brings an entirely new style of performance, from the way the drum (paranku) is hit, to the way you move your feet. It is one of our most energetic and unique pieces, and is a style that we are proud to perpetuate in our repertoire. Look out for an eisa piece at our Spring Concert in April!
