We kicked this week off with a BANG here at Lexis Byron Bay!

We were lucky enough to have a visit from The Byron Bay Taiko Drumming Group! They brought along all of their traditional Japanese drums and and treated us to a special performance and workshop!

Between the morning and afternoon group we had a great time learning about different drum patterns and movements.

One of taiko’s most defining aspects is it’s dynamic playing style. Taiko playing is loud, hard, and fast, and involves a lot of choreographed movement which many identify with Japanese martial arts.
