Founded in the Spring of 2002 by Reverend Earl Ikeda, Puna Taiko’s mission is to “perpetuate the rich cultural tradition of taiko while reinforcing the concepts of individual uniqueness and interdependent teamwork.” To this end, our primary performance ensemble is our Youth Performance group, which is made up of students from schools across East Hawaii; including Keaau High, Keaau Elementary, Waiakea High, Hawaii Academy of Arts and Sciences and the University of Hawaii.
Headquartered at the Puna Hongwanji Mission in Keaau, classes are held every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday and are open to all ages and skill levels.
