Stockton Bukkyo Taiko is an affiliate organization of the Buddhist Church of Stockton. The group was founded in 1990 by Reverend David Matsumoto to help practice Buddhist teachings in a fun manner. Although some taiko players are church members, the public is welcome to join the group. We have classes for both recreational and performing group members.
Our performing group plays at many cultural and community events. We have performed at a variety of festivals, fundraisers, and celebrations in addition to providing taiko drumming in support of the Stockton Buddhist Temple. Contact us to inquire about our schedule and if it is possible for us to play at your event.
