Maui Taiko, established in 1996, is a non-profit charitable corporation organized to perpetuate traditional Japanese folk songs and dances of the Buddhist O-Bon festival and to promote taiko (Japanese drumming) music. Maui Taiko plays the traditional Japanese folk song, Fukushima Ondo, at many O-Bon festivals and cultural events on Maui and seeks to perpetuate the song for future generations. The group continues to work toward elevating their artistry in taiko and sharing it with the community.
