Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: Drum beats, hand clapping and noise, oh my!

There will be no “shushing” at the at the Incline Village Library on Wednesday, May 25. In fact, we are gonna get LOUD and ask that you get loud with us, and the talented Tsurunokai Drummers.

Oh, yes, you read that right – drumming in the library! It’s going to be fantastic. Tsurunokai Drummers demonstrate the exciting art of traditional Japanese taiko drumming and share insight into Japanese culture.

The group plays traditional Japanese folk music as well as original songs and has performed in numerous multicultural festivals and charity events in the Reno/Sparks/Tahoe area.

This cultural event is made possible by Friends of the Washoe County Library and Pioneer Center Youth Programs. See you at the library!
