Taiko Census

The 2020 Taiko Census is Happening NOW!

From November 1 – December 31, 2020


What is the Census?

The Taiko Census is a periodic snapshot of individual data on taiko players worldwide. TCA sponsors the census to deepen our understanding of our community, document the spread of the art form, guide our programming, and support our search for additional resources to benefit the taiko community.

The 2020 Taiko Census will build upon the snapshots taken in 2013 and 2016. We are collecting information on individual taiko practices and piecing together a picture of how many people and groups make up our broad taiko community.
