Experimenting with Omiyage

Omiyage was written by Shoji Kameda as a gift to the taiko community. The literal translation of omiyage is gift, and the intention of this song is to spread this particular piece to all taiko groups around the world. 

In this particular video, we experimented with playing the piece with only the Odaiko (Big drum) and the shime and okedo daiko. The students playing on the shime/okedo set worked hard at creating their own version of Omiyage using those two instruments. Check it out!
