Ensō Daiko offers loud, energetic performances that combine music, dance, culture, and pure athleticism.
The group regularly premieres new work adding their unique voice to the expanding canon and innovation of North American taiko. Through performances, studio classes and school residencies, Ensō Daiko has taught thousands of students of all ages and abilities.
Ensō Daiko was founded as Mu Daiko in 1997 by Rick Shiomi. New Artistic Director, Jennifer Weir, renamed it Ensō Daiko in 2017, when TaikoArts Midwest took over the taiko program formerly supported by Theater Mu.
A symbol in Zen Buddhism and Japanese calligraphy, ensō has many meanings:
- circle of togetherness
- strength, elegance, enlightenment
- the moment when the mind is free to let the body create
- the acceptance of imperfection as perfect
- the void or “mu”
