Kaminari Taiko of Houston presents Arts for Arts’ Sake
In the wake of Harvey, local arts supporters and organizations banded together to create the Harvey Arts Recovery Fund. This project supports the disaster recovery needs of the Greater Houston arts, culture, and creative community across ten counties by collecting and distributing assistance to help individual artists and smaller organizations get back on their feet. Kaminari Taiko partners with friends at Silambam Houston, MATCH, and Harvey Arts Recovery to present this concert to raise funds in support of local artists. All proceeds will be donated to Harvey Arts Recovery.
The evening will feature both taiko and Indian classical dance. Taiko is a style of Japanese ensemble drumming that combines booming rhythms and high-energy choreography. Taiko is athletic, spiritual, toe-tapping, heart-pounding, and eye-catching, all at once. Indian classical dance is a complex and nuanced dance language that is thousands of years old. With intricate footwork, sculpturesque poses, Indian classical dance combines several artistically stimulating experiences into a single performance art. Taiko and Indian classical dance pair beautifully, and they are excited to present them on the same stage for the first time in Houston. Join to help ensure that artists have what they need to write, draw, compose, perform, build, and embody the art that brings joy to people's lives.
