In an effort to bring the worldwide taiko community together, the first World Taiko Gathering was held in downtown Los Angeles in July 2014.  The group Taiko Project and the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center presented the event which featured taiko workshops, discussion sections and performances by attendees and volunteers from Japan, Brazil, Belgium, Argentina, Australia, Spain, New Zealand, Canada, and the U.K. Maui Taiko delegates were inspired by the growth of taiko throughout the world and gained new insights to share with the group.
