Welcome to the Mukume Taiko website. This is where parents, drummers, and the public can see what we're doing, where we're doing it, and who its for. It is also for the colleges where we teach taiko, Samuel Marsden in Whitby and Kapiti College in Paraparaumu. This website is a work in progress, so please be patient with us.
The Mukume Taiko Drummers are the only teen taiko drumming team in the lower North Island of NZ and possibly the only group in the country. We have an accomplished team of about 12 with some members who have been drumming with us for coming up to 11 years, since they were 5! We have drummed at many large events in front of full theaters of people, and have had a standing ovation many a time. We also teach drumming to two of the local colleges, Samuel Marsden Whitby and Kapiti College.
