Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival

  • 7th April 2009

The 2009 Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival is ongoing at various venues around Greater Vancouver. Once again, Chibi Taiko performed at the Cherry jam at the Burrard Skytrain Station, this time with Yaikai Ryukyu Taiko.  As I was performing with Chibi, I couldn’t shoot our set, but I managed to get some good shots of the Yaikai Ryukyu Taiko folks during their piece.  There’s still lots going on at the Festival – see for details.

Vancouver Folk Music Festival

  • 26th July 2008

Check out the new performance t-shirts!

Below is John’s editorial from the August issue of The Bulletin:

My neck is sun burnt, my legs ache, and my back hurts . . . all in all, it was a successful weekend! I spent July 18, 19 and 20 at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival—an event that I have been a part of for going on 30 years, first as an audience member, then as a performer, and lately as co-coordinator (with Amy) of the children’s area. This year, Chibi Taiko—the youth taiko group that our daughters Emiko and Kaya belong to—performed there for the first time, playing a set Saturday morning on the kid’s area stage. For most members of the group, it was just another performance; for my kids and me, it had special meaning. Emi and Kaya have grown up attending two festivals every summer—the Powell Street Festival on the BC Day long weekend and, a few weeks earlier, the Vancouver Folk Music Festival. The former connects them to their Nikkei community and heritage, the latter connects them to a different kind of community. From the outside, to those who have never attended the Folk Festival, it can seem like nothing more than an exotic mélange of aging hippies, pierced, tattooed youths and assorted other anti-establishment types squatting in the dirt in front of small stages to listen to music that would never be heard anywhere else outside of the CBC. It is all those things, but it is also something much harder to explain to the uninitiated. It is, for three nights and two days, a place where the outside world goes into soft focus, where garbage and ads are at a bare minimum, where it’s safe to let your kids wander off clutching a twenty-dollar bill, where people pick up after themselves, where doctors and daycare workers share the same patch of earth (and often wearing the same t-shirt). It is a place where star power has little or no currency, where musicians and volunteers line up for the same food served on reusable plates and use the same porta-potties.

Canada Day 2008

  • 7th July 2008

Chibi Taiko played two shows on Canada Day this year. The first show, featuring the junior members (+Emi), was at Richmond Park in Burnaby. It was the debut public performance for Dana, Takuma and Kyle, and they acquitted themselves very well. The second show, featuring four of the seniors (including Emi in one of her first shows as a fully-integrated senior member), was out in Abbotsford, where the group played last year. Some photos from the second show as posted below. I was on stage playing percussion during the morning show and couldn’t take any photos!

Tonari Gumi Run and Walk

  • 13th May 2008

Chibi Taiko participated in the first annual Tonari Gumi Run and Walk at Burnaby’s Central Park on Sunday. There were about thirty of us from Chibi taking part, most of whom opted for the 3k stroll. Shinobu, our noble leader, was the only one who took the 10k running option. That’s why he’s the only one sweating in the photos. After the run/walk we all sat down to a delicious bento lunch provided by TG. We then played two pieces. Musubi was a bit of a challenge as Kayo was having her wisdom teeth extracted, leaving a vacancy at shime. Emiko, who has never performed it (but had two lessons in the past two months) and Shinobu shared the part. It was ragged but fun. Then the whole group (seniors and juniors) played Matsuri. It was a great day. Congratulations to Tonari Gumi, who got a much bigger turn-out then they planned for. Next year . . . bigger and better! Click on the first photo to start slide show.
