"Beni" means "deep red" in Japanese, representing Madison, and "Taiko" means drum. This group was founded in November 2012 to introduce and share Japanese culture through Japanese drumming. Their goal is to teach, preserve, and perform the ancient art of Taiko drumming. Their mission is to introduce a facet of Japanese culture through teaching and performing for people of all ages.
