Yamabiko Taiko is a Japanese-style drumming group based in Kelowna, BC, Canada. Composed of members of the community, Yamabiko practices and performs throughout the year.


The Pandemic has affected organizations everywhere, and Yamabiko Taiko is no different.   All our performances were cancelled due to the pandemic.   We need to continue to improve our skills by practising and attending online workshops as well as pay rent.  To do this we need some form of income.  We appreciate your helping us continue to operate by donating any amount!  You can contribute by going to our GoFundMe page.



Beginner Practices (note: due to the pandemic, practices are suspended until further notice)

Yamabiko Taiko will hold a beginner practice at the end of January and the end of September each year.  Beginner practices are for those who want to try taiko, and also for those who want to join the group.   Wear flexible clothing, bring a bottle of water, and be prepared to sweat a bit!   The practice starts at 7 pm sharp in the basement of Kelowna Buddhist Temple, 1089 Borden Ave in Kelowna.  The fee is $5.

Please contact us for the exact date of the beginner practice as the date approaches.
