On June 23, 2012, Chibi Taiko played at a multicultural event presented by the Vancouver Cantonese Opera society at the CBC Outdoor Plaza.
On July 7, Chibi Taiko played for the National Nikkei Heritage Centre to celebrate Tanabata. The junior members did a great job focusing given that audience members were only steps away from the performers.
Jordy, Kayo, Becky and Shinobu attended the Regional Taiko Gathering in August hosted by Portland Taiko. They received a rousing reception during an informal performance when they presented Donburi and their Okedo piece.
The seniors and intermediates played for a picnic for Tonari Gumi on the grass at Spanish Banks. Shakuhachi master, Takeo Yamashiro, commented that the group was “very tight,” in other words, they sounded good and were really together despite the absence of Shinobu.
Again in August, Chibi played for the Taiwan Festival with giant video screens in the background projecting images of the players. Looked and sounded really cool.
