Kathy Tanaka

Performer: Kathy has long loved rhythms, both in dance and drums. After playing an African djembe for years and dancing to Middle Eastern rhythms, she is happy to be finally getting back to her roots by playing taiko. She was excited to find Naruwan's high energy style and welcoming embrace; being part of the Naruwan family has enriched her life. For her, it is a perfect combination of drums, high energy, focus, movement, and all with a seriously fun group of people! And she loves her taiko biceps!
