Jessica Woods

Performer: Jessica saw taiko for the first time in high school, as a participant in a student exchange trip to Japan. But her first real exposure to the art was through Senryu Taiko at the University of California, Riverside. Jessica loved the combination of strength and theatrics in taiko, performing for audiences and family alike. She performed with Senryu for four years, and joined Naruwan Taiko in 2015.
